Last Sunday in our morning worship our songsters (choir) sang a Christmas song which I hadn’t heard before. Both the music and the words really touched me as together they combined the beauty of the nativity, the promised arrival of the Son of God, and the awesome feeling we get when we experience Christ in our lives.

Please listen to this beautiful song and experience the awesomeness of Christmas once again. I hope you are blessed by the words and music.

Christmas Sanctus

See the weary pair,
nestled in a stable bare,
gazing at their baby boy,
filled with love and praise.

Earth and heaven sing,
worshipping the new born King,
who has come to change the world.
Join in songs of praise:

Holy, holy, holy is the blessed one.
Heav’n and earth are filled with your glory.
Holy, holy, holy is the promised Son.
Glory be to God in the highest!

See the shepherds run,
searching for God’s precious Son;
kneeling at his manger bed,
filled with love and praise.

Ev’ry knee will bow.
Ev’ry tongue confessing now,
Jesus Christ is Lord of all.
Join in songs of praise:

Holy, holy, holy is the blessed one,
Heav’n and earth are filled with your glory.
Holy, holy, holy is the promised Son.
Glory be to God in the highest!

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord

I’ve done a few Word Associations with you over the last while, but as you’ll see from the title this is another Christmas word association today. It may be a Christmas edition word association, but it’s the same format, so I’m going to throw some words at you  and I want you to note down the first word that comes into your mind when you read each word.

So here goes…

  1. wordsTV advert
  2. Christmas shopping
  3. Bells
  4. Carol service
  5. Pudding
  6. Shepherd
  7. Star
  8. Christmas dinner
  9. Work
  10. Christmas cards

 

So how did you get on with those words? Did you find it easy? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you expected?

Well here’s my responses to my questions:

  1. John Lewis
  2. Queues
  3. Watchnight service
  4. Nativity
  5. Snow bombe
  6. Lost
  7. Bright
  8. Marks and spencers
  9. Holidays!
  10. Stamps

Were any of your answers the same as mine? Did any of my answers confuse you? Did any of your own answers confuse you?

I’ve said in previous word association posts that I find I get a bit stressed when I’m doing them as I put a lot of pressure on myself not to over think my answers! Are you relaxed when you do them or do you find it stressful too?

I still believe that when we respond with the first words that come into our minds, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state, and what’s important to us at that particular point in time.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?

By the way, if you want me to explain any of my answers, just ask!
