Literacy Musing Mondays ~ Songs of Wonder

Pin It Now!
  baby jesus

Christmas is a time of sheer wonder for me. I often wonder what Jesus' earthly life was like. 

What was it like leaving a throne and entering a womb? 

What was it like trading riches for rags, taking on flesh, living as Immanuel, God with us, yet being rejected by so many, even those who claimed to serve You. 

What was it like living among humans, perfectly loving sinners without condoning sin? 

I wonder what it was like for Mary, Joseph, and even Jesus' siblings. 

Have you ever wondered things like this? 

I'm so glad that that there are songwriters who've captured the essence of this wonder of mine. :) I know there are lots more songs, but here are three songs of wonder that I enjoy listening to each year.

My Favorite Post of the Week

7 Ways to Encourage Creativity in our Kids

I'm in that older-kids homeschooling phase of life. I enjoy some of the freedoms that come with that, but new challenges have certainly arisen. One of those challenges involves creativity, and this post offers some great ideas and resources. :)  

 Remember to check out other hosts' blogs to see which posts from last week were their favorites. Want to be the next to be featured! Just link up a post and if you are read the most, we will feature you. Also please make sure you link back to us so others will know about our link up and join in. We try to make it worth your while to linkup with us by promoting your posts across our social media networks. We also pin our most clicked and featured posts to our Pinterest Board each week!

Now, it is time to link up to the Literacy Musing Mondays hop!

Linkup Rules:

  1. Include a link back or the blog hop button linked to this hop on your posts.
  2. Link up the urls to your posts not to your blog.
  3. Please remember this is a family-friendly linkup. Although we believe in the right for adults to read whatever they want to read, we prefer to read wholesome posts that feature literature that edify and uplift families. We reserve the right to delete any posts that are not family friendly. We love all kinds of literature and genres including family-friendly inspirational romances, fantasy, or science fiction. We do not welcome any posts that feature excessive violence, sexual content, or any cursing. This rule also applies to book review posts that feature books that are not family-friendly. These posts will be deleted without notice to the blogger or explanation. While we believe in the right for all adults to read whatever they want, we feel our linkup is for family-friendly posts only. Thank you for understanding.
  4. We also want to be loving community by supporting one another. Please make a point to do this this week! Visit the two posts before yours and at least one other blogger's post of your choice! I want to see lots of clicks on everyone's posts. Remember it is also nice to follow them on their social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
  5. Follow your hosts and co-hosts on their social media.
  6. Tweet about the link up too.
