that Will Ferrel’s debut as ELF may not be enticing Christmas viewing to all of you readers, but I do love a few of his quotes:
“The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.”
…and the scene when he stands decked out in green tights with all elf-like accessories, proving a point by loudly proclaiming:
“I’m singing/I’m in a store/and I’m siiiiiingiiiiing!/I’m in a store/and I’m siiiiiingiiiiing!”
These lines appeal to me and touch my heart because it is a valiant attempt at JOY. The uninhibited manner in which ELF declares what he knows and feels to be true is a good reminder to me.
JOY, is simple.
Isaiah 9:6 is simple.
And one of my favorite Christmas Hymns is simple.
“Joy to the world! The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King!
Let every heart prepare Him room…”
“Joy to the world! the Savior reigns….”
“No more let sin and sorrow grow
Nor thorns infest the ground
He comes to make
His blessings flow……”
“He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness”
“And wonders of his love
And wonders of his love…”
And wonders and wonders of his love…
Listen here — and sing it out…
…are you in your PJ’s still ?
Stand up and sing for all to hear! Spread the Christmas Cheer and proclaim the Savior’s birth and the JOY that knowing Him brings!
Merry Christmas to you all!
I am singing…I am siiiiiniiiing! Are you?
