"A Soldier's Christmas Song"
On this Christmas Eve, I can't help but be reminded of the thousands of brave men and women who are currently serving in our military around the world. As if 2020 wasn't hard enough for us all, imagine those soldiers who cannot be home for the holidays.
It is with that thought in mind that I continue an annual tradition that started in 2009, to share this video and song of mine each and every Christmas. I am so very pleased and honored to know that this video has been viewed more than 269,000 times to date over these years. Because I know that for each and every viewing, it touches someone's heart and soul. Whether it a parent, sibling, grandparent, cousin, friend of a soldier, or a soldier him or her self, the message of this song and video makes a connection.
Here are the chorus lyrics:
"We see the Christmas Star, but from afar
Hear the Jingle Bells, just not as well.
Always pray for 'Silent Nights', cause we see different Christmas lights.
We'll say a Christmas prayer, wish we were there
Hang the mistletoe, but miss you so
Hope to God we're not here long, this is A Soldier's Christmas Song"
So, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I hope you can find it in your heart to share in the message within this song and video. Think about our troops and pray for their safe return (sooner than later).
