Funny Christmas Music Ya Gotta Hear & A Christmas Poem

My friend, Diane at A Picture is Worth A Thousand... hosts Trash to Treasure. She finds what someone thinks is not worth much and tweaks it a bit to create a thing of value for her home. If you'd like to join in the fun, click on the link.

This is a stretch, so work with me here. I had so much fun participating last week that I wanted to play this week. Now, I'm not a "crafty" person, however, I've gathered up what some people may think is TRASH and hopefully, after you've inspected, you'll agree that it's TREASURE.

I snatched a funny piece of music from my baby boy at Allen: All Day. Then, the nasty copyright people took it away! I hunted through the trash bins and found a slightly different one: same song, amateur group.


Christmas Poem

Let the stable still astonish; Straw--dirt floor, dull eyes, Dusty flanks of donkeys, oxen; Crumbling, crooked walls; No bed to carry that pain, And then, the child, Rag-wrapped, laid to cry In a trough, Who would have chosen this? Who would have said: “Yes. Let the God of ll the heavens And earth Be born here, in this place”? Who but the same God Who stands in the darker, fouler rooms of our hearts and says, “Yes. Let the God of Heaven and Earth be born here-- in this place.”
--from Light from Heaven by Jan Karon

I've seen a similar one on YouTube by a group called "Straight No Chaser." Starts out the same but ends differently. Hilarious!

Those are some talented kids! They sing beautifully...and trying to keep that all straight must have been really hard! And I was touched by the poem. Gosh we need to be reminded of these things.

Sally, I loved your post today. The singers were awesome and so funny. They sure could sing too.

The poem is sweet. Did you read Jan Karon's Midford series of books? A really good read. I loved them all.

Christmas love...Jeanne
