‘O Holy Night’ ( Andre Rieu)

It used to be, whenever I went to my aunts’ house around Christmastime,  they were watching this guy on television–Andre Rieu, with his Johann Strauss Orchestra. They loved him.

Well, now I can’t go there anymore. The very house has been torn down and replaced, no sign remaining that it ever existed, and they’ve all gone on before, leaving but a few of us on the earth. Aunt Joan is the last of us in her generation.

I will not forget. Hard for me to watch this video, but I wouldn’t want to miss it: the happy times that were shall be again, in Christ’s Kingdom. God has promised it.
