Christmas celebrates the most meaningful event to take place in human history. However, the fact of its importance also makes it a metaphorical magnet for the entire range of human creative endeavor, from devoted offering to smarmy or even intentionally offensive actions.
Me? I'm too busy marveling over the fact that, skanky as my character is (you too -- have you looked into your own soul and thoughts lately?), the fact of my existence makes me valuable enough that the Creator of all things (including the universe that contains me, and the "universes" contained within each person's heart and mind) loved -- and still loves -- me enough to do this: He voluntarily shed nearly all of his essence to "fit into" a human existence; lived a life of service and compassion -- and knowingly died, just to communicate his love for me.
All of this music helps me celebrate. Some is quite and meditative; some is both thankful AND silly. After all, families don't ONLY communicate with hugs, but also with tickles!
Consider what love the Father has for us, as you listen.
Merry Christmas Time!
