The Last Christmas

Again with the non-original blog content.

But, this is pretty special to me... a sweet little gift this morning. It's seeming increasingly likely that we'll have a post-Christmas baby.  A few minutes ago, I was working away and listening to my Pandora Christmas station, and "The Last Christmas" by Sixpence None the Richer started playing. The lyrics caught my attention... I think you'll see why I liked it so much.





I feel your heart beating
Inside my own skin
And I think of Mary
In Bethlehem

That night in a stable
Our Saviour was born
Yes, we have so much
To be thankful for

On the last Christmas
The last Christmas
The last Christmas
Without you

We're choosing the colors
Preparing your room
For one day; Midsummer
The advent of you

Together we wait for
A heavenly gift
Is winter a wonder?
Enchanted that this is

The last Christmas
The last Christmas
The last Christmas
Without you

See the stars shining from above
Hear the Seraphim singing
Praise to the Giver of Life and Love
Maker of Beautiful things..

I feel you heart beating
Inside my own skin
And I think of Mary
In Bethlehem

When darkness was shattered
The dawn of God's grace
And the journey'd begun
To the first Easter day

On the this Christmas
The last Christmas
The last Christmas
The very last Christmas
The last Christmas
Without you

Thanks for this song. I just received my referral last week after a 4 1/2 year wait, so this is also my last Christmas.
