"I Heard the Bells..." ~

I love this Christmas Hymn. It is a sentimental favorite that always reminds me of sitting in Church at Christmastime with my family. I would always sing alto, and I remember my Dad singing bass. It was such a favorite wherever we were living. This year it hadn't been on any of the programs throughout December and last Sunday when we got to church I looked at the bulletin and it wasn't scheduled that day either. I figured I would just miss out on that memory this year, but as they were closing the meeting they announced a change and "I Heard the Bells On Christmas Day" was the closing hymn. I was thrilled, but as they started the prelude I got so choked up with memories, that I couldn't sing. Yeah, I sat there in tears listening and remembering so many wonderful years of memories with my family. So to my dear family, I hope all of you enjoyed your holidays as you were literally spread from one corner of this country to the other. You were thought of, remembered and missed.
