MAY: The music of Christmas

(Continued)

And there’s a lady who sits all alone with her thoughts,

And the memories of all that she’s lost,

When she hears a sound at her door,

And a song comes to find her, as a gentle reminder:

Love is here, it’s the music of Christmas.

Perhaps you can relate to Chapman’s words and to his life. Perhaps Christmas is not only filled with joy, but also painful events, hollow promises, or empty dreams. Perhaps Christmas leaves you with as many question marks as exclamation points. Perhaps you can be the one who sits alone with your thoughts during the Christmas season.

Listen — listen with your heart — to the sound at the door. Be reminded.

— Tom May is the Minister of Discipleship at Eastside Christian Church in Jeffersonville. He is an adjunct instructor in the Communications Department at Indiana University Southeast.
