Various "DREAM Christmas Volume 2 " by Julia Kitzing (cmaddict.com) on 2013-11-08 19:25:31
Personally, I love Christmas music and this album is a collection of popular Christmas carols like: “O Holy Night”, “What Child is This”, “Joy to the World”, “Carol of the Bells” and a few other songs. The songs that are well known are traditional carols done with a more modern twist; it would make a very nice addition to a collection of Christmas music.
“The Sounds of Christmas” is a very pretty song. I love that with this song you can close your eyes and remember Christmas growing up. This particular song combines many memories of childhood Christmases in the lyrics, “the sounds of Christmas, bringing me home, no matter where this road leads…” Another song on this album that I really enjoy is “Glorious Cross.” This song shares the message of the cross in a song talking about perfect love conquering everything. It’s a wonderful end to this album, reminding everyone what Jesus did on the cross for us and about the hope He offers, “a hope that never fails because death won’t win.”
Overall, this album is a wonderful collection of Christmas music. It would make the perfect background while decorating the tree with your family or on Christmas morning while opening gifts. It’s a peaceful collection of holiday cheer in a collection of songs.

ARTICLE Slightly Obsessed #220: We Only Have One Job
The Martha in us makes everything so hard, when the Lord is calling us to be Mary, running toward the sound of His voice; sitting in stillness as His feet; not wasting a moment of our time with Him in distracted busyness. Simply clinging to His every word.
