Music Monday–A Favorite Christmas Song of Mine

By Ruth on December 21, 2010 in Uncategorized

I have listed this song tonight in my music Monday because it has been a song that has been with me for  a long time.  I’ll start by saying that my dad is a Karen Carpenter fan, and  I couldn’t stand her!  I  tried to listen to her music, and I could not get  into her  voice for some reason.  I don’t know why.

I used to collect Christmas albums, and  this song happened to be on one or two of them.  It became the only Karen Carpenter I would sing  as a teenager.  And sing it, I did.  My first love was in high school–Kyle Haugen.  (Ironic that neither of us are married, and we  both now live in the Puget Sound area again after being away for a while–no, trust me, I don’t want him!  That was high school!!)  I can remember thinking of him at Christmas with this song because he wasn’t interested in me.  and I was so very desperate for him to show some interest.

Then in college, when I dated and got engaged to my now ex-husband Paul, this was the song  I would  sing  when I missed him.  I spent every Christmas with him though–that was weird.  I must not have sung it much with him.

Here’s the stranger thing.  I’ll share this although I have never shared it with anyone else.  When things were bad in my marriage and I first knew Martin,  I would sing this song and think of him.  I was convinced that it was just friendship love.  And it probably was then.  We were apart for many Christmases.  And I sing it  now hoping  and praying that he will turn to God and then to me.

I had a hormonal attack about an hour or so ago, and I am glad that Martin was not  interested.  I don’t know if  I could have handled the temptation.  I guess I just get tired of waiting sometimes.  But I  am currently reading Redeeming Love, and God brought the words of Hosea to me–“Just wait.”  And that is what I am doing.  And God controlled my hormones.  I actually didn’t know I had such strong  hormones till  Martin came along!

Okay, enough for tonight.  Enjoy the song.  Sorry it isn’t better quality.
