Giveaway

I'm happy to introduce you all to my friend, Desiree ... She's got a great little shop and is offering a giveaway to our Silver Strands readers. To enter just leave a comment. 3 additional entries if you're a follower! Here's Desiree:

Hi! I am Desiree from
.simply.simon. and I am honored to be guest posting today & hosting a giveaway right here on Silver Strands. Since I am hosting Christmas in July over on my blog I thought that today's inspirational Monday should be about something that inspires me at Christmas time. I believe that most people are inspired by Christmas songs so I will share my favorite one with you today, called When Love Came Down. It is sung by Point of Grace & written by Chris Eaton. Christmas should be about Christ & this song is a simple reminder of why we all get to be filled with joy an Celebrate. I love every line and it is a favorite all year round. To listen to this beautiful song go here.
Lyrics:

Close your eyes and share the dream
Let everyone on earth believe
The Child was born, the stars shone bright
And Love came down at Christmas time
And Love came down at Christmas time

Christmas Eve, 2 am
Heavy snow is falling down
And the streets clothed in white
Echo songs that were sung by candlelight

We're alive, we can breathe
But do we really care for this world in need?
There's a choice we must make each and every day

So close your eyes and share the dream
Let everyone on earth believe
The Child was born, the stars shone bright
And Love came down at Christmas time
And Love came down at Christmas time

So Merry Christmas everyone
And Peace throughout the year
The time has come to celebrate
So let your voices fill the air
Everyone, watch and pray that the sun will shine on a brighter day
Join your hands, lift them high
For this gift of life

When Love came down at Christmas time
When Love came down at Christmas time
When Love came down at Christmas time
When Love came down at Christmas time

So close your eyes and share the dream
Let everyone on earth believe
The Child was born, the stars shone bright
And Love came down at Christmas time
And Love came down at Christmas time

  18. I have blogged about my love of journals and albums of all types. Before I was blogging (about 5 decades worth) I filled every journal and workbook, notebook I got my hands on. My personal letters were legendary.
    As a blogger I am really very quiet. Wonder why that is.
