I'm not a big fan of Christmas music. Don't get me wrong, I love hearing them in worship, but by the time Christmas rolls around, I have heard every song at least 50 million times. Well, at least since it started consuming the radio days after Halloween. I have to admit, though, there is one song that I love to hear. When it plays on our itunes, there is rarely a time that I don't have a sudden urge to start belting out the lyrics. Six years ago, I deemed the song as Jonathan and my "Christmas love song" (don't you just love how you had songs for different seasons of your dating life).
And I hate to admit that its theology is very awful. I know that I don't technically need my husband, but I am so thankful I am graced to spend my Christmases with him. I am also very thankful that I am no longer enslaved to the idolatry of Jonathan like I once was when I deemed this song as ours. I now can't help but to sing it and see the evidence of God's grace in my life...and of course, swoon Jonathan with my, oh, so beautiful singing. (yeah, right!)
So what's your favorite Christmas song?
