I heard the sound of angels tonight....

A friend and I went to our school's annual Christmas concert tonight. It was one of the most amazing things I have ever heard. I was graced to hear a choir full of remarkable voices coming together to praise our One and Beloved Creator… At the end of the concert the whole choirs filled the auditorium, the lights were dimmed as “Silent Night” was done with just their voices. Slowly, candlelight started in the back of the room… I sat there in the dark, listening to all this thinking that it’s Christmas again – and I could barley believe it… The whole experience brought me to tears… It’s so easy to get caught up in everything – finals, shopping, friends, day to day stuff that pulls us and before you know it – if you don’t blink – the time has passed and you find yourself wondering where it has gone…

“Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright. Round yon virgin mother and child. Holy infant so tender and mild, sleep in heavenly peace. Sleep in heavenly peace.”
