You may be thinking does Jennifer know that it is July? Does she realize that this is a Christmas song? The answers are Yes and Yes and there is a point! As I was driving, which I LOVE to do, I was listening to random music on my iPod and "Hark The Harold Angels Sing" came on and I listened to the song several times. As I listened to this song it came alive to me, the virgin birth, the angels celebrating! It was a moment in time that we should celebrate not just in December! As I take time to reflect on this song now in the stillness and humidity of July I am able to get a better image of what Mary had gone through and the celebrating that had gone on when Jesus Christ, the Messiah was born!!!! I'm grateful that I heard this song in July. I think at times we get so caught up in the busyness of December that we don't take time to truly reflect on the words of the song but rather we go through the motions. So, even though it is July and there are no Christmas decorations up at your home take time to reflect on the words of this Carol! Be blessed as you are a blessing to others!
