Traditions Slideshow

All the snow we're getting here has me thinking of Christmas, so today I decided to put together a slideshow to go with my song, Traditions. I hope you enjoy it!





Hanging up the sparkling lights around our manger scene,
to show the birth of Jesus is what Christmas truly means,
was our tradition every year, to give God all the glory.
Songs of Jesus coming retold the Christmas story.
~
Gingerbread and candy canes,
cookies baked to give away,
singing carols, Christmas plays,
gifts and going to Grandma’s place;
while some traditions come and go, others we hold dear.
We cherish all the memories we’ve created through the years.
~
Mom was always first to wake, but soon the kids would rouse.
We’d snuggle under blankets, as we gathered all around.
This one tradition never changed, for every Christmas morning,
Dad would take his Bible, and read the Christmas story.

  1. So beautiful! I'd rather do this as my Christmas mood setting, recalling so many memories and looking forward to creating more. We had a joyous, if short, time with our family yesterday -- and will do so again tomorrow when another grandchild arrives. Thanks for sharing. God bless you this Christmas season and through the coming year.

  2. That is precious, Deb. I loved your video and music. I need to learn how to do something like that.
