The Last Christmas

One of the coolest songs I’ve listened to this Christmas was recommended by my friend Bethany.  She always knows the best new music and she made a mix for us at the beginning of the Christmas season that included this song. 

The song is called The Last Christmas by Sixpence None The Richer (listen to it here).  Melissa and I have remarked several times that this will be the last Christmas with just the two of us.  It will be the last New Year without a baby to take care of and get to bed.  In a few short weeks our lives are going to change drastically. 

At the same time, I can’t help but think about Mary and Joseph in a new light.  Melissa commented the other day that it is hard to imagine a teenage Mary making the long walk to Bethlehem while being pregnant.  As I feel our baby kick and move around (a pretty amazing feeling by the way) I can’t help but wonder what it would have been like to feel that and know that you were feeling God move.

This may be our last Christmas but I can’t wait for the year to come.

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

They’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 for above
Hear the 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 (x 3)
