o holy night

It is what Christmas is all about... our dear Savior's birth. I LOVE this song and Celine does a marvelous job with her crystal clear version.

How lovely! Not only because she is yours, but her face signifies the face of smiling children around the world. You have a gift for capturing the heart of all mother's and grandmother's whose prayers and lives live for a beautiful world. Christmas Blessings, dear Marmee. (Had trouble getting through on Blotanical so came through the back door :) ... my site. Hugs!

Celine is one of my favorite singers. Thanks for sharing.

Hey, Marmee, instead of copying and pasting the "URL" on youtube, you copy and paste the "embed" portion (the code is located on the right of the youtube video, right below the url portion). Sometimes, on my blogger it doesn't work when I try to paste so I paste into a "new" email first, then keep copying and pasting from the email, until it works. Funky I know. That way, the actual video will show up on your blog instead of just the link. If you're wanting it that way...

hello meems,
yes we need to celebrate, Christ our Lord, as the world rejoices with us. what a great time of the year.

marmee said...

thanks joey, i didn't think of that but i love that you said

"her face signifies the face of smiling children around the world."

it's true. thank you for your words of kindness, i am a mother and i am a grandmother and thus i share from the heart, i am glad you can sense the passion.
hope you have the most merry christmas ever!

marmee said...

i think her rendition of the song is absolutely amazing!
it was my pleasure to share.
have a very merry christmas tina.

marmee said...

if you only knew how much time i had tried to post this the traditional way, you might laugh. i tried the embedded code. i tried going thru other video places other than youtube. i think i need someone to watch what i am doing to see where i go wrong. i am not sure if i have ever emailed it but will try.
completely different subject.
do you ever find when you go to leave a comment the comment section is up where you can't read what you are writing because it is on top of other comments already left. this happens to me especially on certain blogs. i go ahead and leave a comment not really being able to see what i have written but then preview it and fix it if needed. has this ever happened to you? and what can you do about it>?

tina said...

You too Marmee and your family in case I don't speak with you again. Hard to believe there are only a few days until Christmas!

Susie said...

Such a beautiful and special song! Thanks for posting it Marmee!

Love your new header. It is adorable!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Thanks Marmee. "O Holy Night" is one of my favorites. I love to go to midnight services on Christmas Eve--and listen to someone sing that gorgeous song. Talk about goose bumps!!!

marmee said...

marmee said...

The loveliest mouse ever and a beautiful song.

Abbie said...

Hi Marmee,
I just adore Celine, the voice of an angel. Your baby mouse is just lovely! You can tell by her posture that she must be a fabulous tiny dancer. I wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year!

marmee said...

marmee said...

Gail said...

Rose said...

Marmee, This has always been my favorite Christmas song of all; Celine has the perfect voice for it. Your little "Nutcracker mouse" is the perfect image of the season--to me, seeing Christmas through a child's eyes makes it so special.
Christmas greetings and blessings to you, Marmee!

marmee said...

i do appreciate your sweet words. we do so love our mouse in our house. we all have thoroughly enjoyed the christmas season so far. just 2 days, i'm cooking so in between thought i would pop by and glad to be able to wish you a most happy christmas and blessings on all of your family.

marmee said...

i do believe thru a child eyes is the best way to experience the true beauty of christmas too. they are all so wided-eyed and excited to see all that comes with this holiday.
hope you have the merriest of christmases too.
