The Snowman

There are many things of Christmas that I love.  And one of my favorite memories is of a beautiful story called, The Snowman, by Raymond Briggs.  It was originally a book and was later turned into a short animated film in the style of the book.

But what reminded me of this story was its beautiful musical theme, " Walking In The Air." As I've been recovering at home I entertain myself with music. This song began playing on a CD that I have of Celtic Women.  And I became curious to know who wrote the original.  The piece was composed by Howard Blake and performed by Peter Auty.

The following is a short clip from the film.  A little-bit fuzzy I think but it put a smile on my face.  And while I'm talking about smiles let me again thank all of you who have been praying for my recovery.  I deeply appreciate it. :)

Psalm 103:5 " He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle's."



A lovely post also song, here in the UK snow has been forecast so this put me in the mood for the weather.
Take care.

What a beautiful post...! And what a beautiful blog you have.

I am not happy with the way Christmas has been hijacked away from Christians, and turned into something secular that none of us recognize. No other religion would allow us to do that.

Your post is a good reminder as to what Christmas is all about.

Merry Christmas...!



Jo: Thank you for visiting! Merry Christmas to you as well! :)
