Day 16: Christmas Dreams

Making it's second appearance here on the AoE video countdown to CHRISTmas is this very spiritual version of Carol of the Bells. It's by 2002 Music and from the album CHRISTmas Dreams. The thing that struck me about this video is the snow. It's shown in many forms, all beautiful. It reminds me about how different each snowflake is and how different each person is. When it shows the entire world, it reminds me that Christ died not only for me or for those who love Him, but for all of mankind. Still more to come. Until tomorrow... ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ If you liked this post, read…Seven Reasons Why YOU Should Sign Up for the Art of Eloquence Newsletter!
