Musical Monday: Amy Grant

Totally going old school this week by bringing back Amy Grant but there was no other song that I felt could do on this Christmas Eve. For me, it’s one of the most beautiful songs out there and the words are more meaningful then ever. In the midst of all things that have happened and continue to happen everyday, I hope that we are all able to put out good wishes of love, peace and happiness for one another. Here is “My Grown-up Christmas List” to serve as a poignant reminder of all things that truly matter (I also included the lyrics below for those of you that would like to read the words):


“Do you remember me?
I sat upon your knee;
I wrote to you
With childhood fantasies.
Well, I’m all grown-up now,
And still need help somehow
I’m not a child,
But my heart still can dream.
So here’s my lifelong wish,
My grown-up Christmas list.
Not for myself,
But for a world in need.
No more lives torn apart,
That wars would never start,
And time would heal all hearts.
And everyone would have a friend,
And right would always win,
And love would never end.
This is my grown-up Christmas list.
As children we believed
The grandest sight to see
Was something lovely
Wrapped beneath our tree.
Well heaven surely knows
That packages and bows
Can never heal
A hurting human soul.
No more lives torn apart,
That wars would never start,
And time would heal all hearts.
And everyone would have a friend,
And right would always win,
And love would never end.
This is my grown-up Christmas list.
This is my only lifelong wish.
This is my grown-up Christmas list.XOXO,
Martha
