Christmas Countdown

There are soome Christmas songs that everyone covers because they are just that good. This is one of them. But there is something about this version, sung by the lyricist himself, that makes it my favourite version of it. Ever. Mark Lowry sings his song slower than most. And he sings it like he's really speaking to Mary, and really just as awed as she must have been to find out just who her son truly was.

Lovely. Just lovely. Thank-you for blessing me with this treasure. Merry Christmas indeed.... hugs, L.
p.s there is a Haitian fellow in our church who is completely enamored with the Gaithers and often listens to/watches their videos on his HUGE t.v.
