Have a Most Blessed Christmas, Everyone

I share with you excerpts from my all-time favorite Christmas song "The Peace Carol". It was written by Bob Beers and sang by John Denver and The Muppets


The garment of life be it tattered and torn
The cloak of the soldier is weathered and worn
But what Child is this that was poverty-born
The peace of Christmas Day. 

Add all the grief that people may bear
Total the strife  and the trouble and care
Put them in columns and leave them right there
The peace of Christmas Day. 


You can find the complete lyrics here

The song clutched at my heart when I was in my teens, and it clutches at my heart still. For me, the best messages and blessings of Christmas will always be hope, peace, and joy. And they endure -- across time, across peoples, and across all the troubles of mankind. 



Have a most blessed Christmas, dear friends.
