Advent Playlist

This year, I seemed to be drawn toward the theme of light in the darkness. Other years It has been a combination of our themes of hope, peace, joy and love. Sometimes it has centered more on peace. I’m not sure why I’ve been drawn toward light this year, but I bet if I pay attention, I’ll find out.

Wishing you hope this week…

.incarnation moments.

1. Head Full of Doubt- The Avett Brothers. The darkness and light makes you think.

2. Waiting for my Child- Patty Griffin. We are all waiting for a child to come these days…

3. I Will Follow you into the Dark- Cadillac Sky. I wonder what it might mean if we all followed each other into the dark?

4. There Will be a Light- Ben Harper and the Blind Boys of Alabama. We all have incarnation moments in our lives.

5. Wait- Get Set Go. Wait for the dawn my dear.

6. Winter- Joshua Radin. While I wait…remembering, waiting and hoping.

    I love Mariah’s version. If you have some time, listen to the version of “O Holy Night” I just recorded. I’m offering it as a free download. Let me know what you think. Happy Holidays
