Five candles on your cake,
Five kisses when you wake!
Look who's five! It is a very long wait for your birthday when you are four and five and six! But her big day is here...and our Katie has had her morning kisses already.
She came to us in a dramatic way and has proven to be a little drama queen ever since. To be honest, she is dramatic in very sweet and funny ways.
I was 42 when I had her and my husband was 46. We had a senior in high school, a freshman in high school and a fifth grader. The only thing I have ever worried about was that she would not have a close relationship with her older siblings. My fears were unnecessary. She loves her big brothers and sister and they adore her too.
So our little caboose is five and I look forward to what she will become in the next year...five is gettin' pretty old :o)
Here is an old Christmas song that is not sung very much anymore. But
I remember singing it and found it in the old Lutheran Hymnal.
This was written in Latin in the 14th Century. Isn't that amazing!
Good Christian men, rejoice with heart and soul, and voice;
Give ye heed to what we say: News! News! Jesus Christ is born today;
Ox and ass before Him bow; and He is in the manger now.
Christ is born today! Christ is born today!
Good Christian men, rejoice, with heart and soul and voice;
Now ye need not fear the grave: Peace! Peace! Jesus Christ was born to save!
Calls you one and calls you all, to gain His everlasting hall.
Christ was born to save! Christ was born to save!
From Cyberhymnal "Words: Heinrich Suso (?-1366); translated from Latin to English by John M. Neale in Carols for Christmastide (London: 1853). Folklore has it that Suso, hearing angels sing these words, joined them in a dance of worship."
Hum....well I don't know about that...I'm not big on folklore...but if you click on the word cyberhymnal above you can listen and remember and sing along if you like :o)
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas Eve day!
Good Christian men, rejoice, with heart and soul and voice!
