Forgotten Carols

Michael McLean’s touching Christmas tale has become a timeless classic. It tells the story of a nurse whose empty life is changed by her patient, John, who expands her understanding of Christmas. The Forgotten Carols are original songs from the perspective of characters such as the innkeeper who turned the young couple away or the shepherd who slept through the angel’s announcement. Their personal accounts, until now, have been overlooked or ignored. Together, John and Constance discover what the world has fogotten about Chirstmas.

Prayer

Each of us has experienced circumstances in our lives when the only person we can turn to is God. Whether in times of greatest need or times when our hearts have been filled with gratitude for the blessings we have received and for the lessons we have learned, we have felt constrained to kneel before Him and express our desires, thanks and praise. These “prayer songs” comprise some of the most beautiful, powerful and dramatic ever written.

Bedtime and Naptime

It all started when Hilary Weeks decided to adapt the lyrics of the song “My Favorite Things” to capture her favorite things more accurately. High on the list of favorites came “bedtime and naptime,” but those were soon followed by all kinds of quotes, experiences, memories, insights, and even some fun recipes. In this joyful book for moms, Hilary shares many of those favorite things, including her famed “song parodies” on an accompanying CD.

Lyrics:

Climb Ev’ry Mountain
Climb ev’ry mountain
Wash every load
If you’re alive and breathing
Then there are clothes to fold

 

Sort whites and colors
Wash some on hot
All my whites are pink now
Because of one red sock
 
Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo – INTRO
Now, since we’re on the subject of theme songs, is anyone interesting in a theme song for teenagers? It seems to me that teenagers don’t listen very well because you can tell them things over and over and over and they just don’t get it. For instance, I have a teenage daughter and I I have told her more times than I can count, “Please clear off the bathroom counter. Before you go to school, put away the hairspray, the deodorant, the curling irons. Just put it all in the drawer.” And every time, she will say: “Ok, Mom. I totally will. That is no problem at all.” And then she goes to school and I walk by the bathroom and everything is still sitting there on the counter. So I have decided that we speak different languages. When I am speaking, this is what she hears:
Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo
Salagadoola mechicka boola bibbidi-bobbidi-boo
I am a teenager, so all I hear is
bibbidi-bobbidi-boo
 
I Believe I Can Fly
 
I believe I can fly
And I will if you continue to cry
I’ve listened to you whine all day
Gonna start the minivan and drive away
 
Cuz my ears are gettin’ sore
You’ll see me running through that open door
And when daddy gets home
Tell him not to call my cell phone
Unless he’s made you dinner
 
And the dishes have been done
And you’ve been tucked into bed
With pajamas and a pull-up on
Otherwise I’ll run errands all night long
Or at least I will try
 
To- Do List
 
The alarm clock goes off. 
I feel like I’m dead.
I push snooze three times
Then I roll out of bed
 
The house is so quiet
The kids still asleep
I have time to myself
So I brush my teeth
 
Then I read my scriptures
And say my prayers
Heaven knows I’ll need help
Not to pull out my hair
 
I wish my whole day could be calm like this
But alas let the rat race begin
 
The kids all wake up
I help them get dressed
I do their hair then I make them breakfast
A healthy well balanced meal
 
I serve captain crunch and fruit loops
I pack them a lunch
I find shoes and socks
Just in time for the bus
 
I kiss them as they walk out the door
You might think I’d be lonely but there are two  more
I plop them in front of morning T.V.
It’s a small price to pay for my sanity
 
Then I exercise for 20 minutes
Shower, dress and do the dishes
Throw in a few loads of laundry
Vacuum the floor
 
Sweep the kitchen, dust the shelves
I really ought to hire help
Change a diaper, find my keys
Then head out the door
 
To Wal-Mart, Costco, Target, ShopKo,
Walgreens just to get a few things
Back in time for visit teaching
But that’s not all
 
Plan the budget pay the bills,
Clean up at least a dozen spills
Check my e-mail, write a blog,
Then call my best friend
 
Help with homework, drive to soccer
Make an appointment with the doctor
Plan a birthday, feed the dog,
Piano lessons
 
Send the friends home
Pick the kids up
Time for the dinner
I’ll order pizza
And when tomorrow comes I’ll do this all again
 
Then my husband comes home, and pulls something out of my hair
It’s a smushed cheerio; I didn’t know it was there
He gives me a hug in his sweet gentle way
And then he asks, “So, what did you do today?”
Just the usual
 
My Favorite Things
 
When I don’t constantly nag at my children
They just do their chores like sweeping the kitchen
When they put toilet paper back on the roll
It feels like I’ve witnessed a small miracle
 
Here’s a few more of my favorite things:
 
Bedtime and naptime and bedtime and naptime
Bedtime and naptime and bedtime and naptime
Did I mention it’s nice when the kids go to sleep
These are a few of my favorite things
 
When the kids fight
When my husband’s late
When I’m feeling sad
I open the freezer, pull out the ice cream
And then I don’t feel so bad
 
 
Who You Are
 
I know you wonder
If you’ll ever have a day
Where the kids stay calm, the laundry’s done
And the dishes are put away

 

And sometimes you feel like
Your days are spent and gone
And the question running through your mind
Is what have I gotten done
And when you finally have a moment to slow down
At the end of your day I know Father would say

 

Believe in what you’re doing
Believe in who you are
And hold tight to the truth that you’re a daughter of God
Believe in who you’re becoming, believe in who you are

 

Now it might seem simple
All the little things you do
But the lives you touch matter so much
And there’s no one else like you

 

And Father needs you to stand tall and faithful
To be all you can be
Oh, if you could see what he sees

 

You’d believe in what you’re doing
You’d believe in who you are
So hold tight to the truth that you’re a daughter of God
Believe in who you’re becoming, believe in who you are

 

And when it’s hard to believe in yourself
And you feel like you’re beginning to doubt
Remember

 

That he believes in what you’re doing
He believes in who you are
So don’t lose sight of the truth that you’re a daughter of God
That he believes in who you’re becoming, He believes in who you are

Lyrics:

1.   Christmas Once Again
(Hilary Weeks)
 
When the frost comes
When mittens and hats go on
When the snow leaves a blanket of white veiling the ground
 
When housetops
Glisten with strings of light
When the children impatiently wait for that magical night
 
It’s Christmas
It’s Christmas once again
 
Sing Halleluia
For a star in the sky and angels who sang
Halleluia, O Halleluia
For the Gift Heaven gave
 
When sleigh bells ring
When evergreens scent the air
When the ovens and counters are filled with goodies to share
 
When the laughter begins
As families gather close
When the melodies of the season echo through our homes
 
It’s Christmas
It’s Christmas once again
 
Repeat Chorus
 
When hearts change
When hope conquers fear
When the things that really matter seem a little more clear
 
When a manger
Tells the story of how we’re blessed
When nations unite in peace and good will to all men
 
It’s Christmas
It’s Christmas once again
 
Repeat Chorus
 
Because of Him
It’s Christmas once again

7.   First Lullaby/Silent Night
(Hilary Weeks/Traditional)
 On this silent holy night
As I hold this precious child
There are no words for this moment
Heaven and Earth meet in my arms tonight
He is mine and yet He is God’s
Sleep now, Sleep my Son
Sleep in peace
 Years ahead will yet unfold
But tonight I’ll keep Him close
Safe and warm in the manger
Emmanuel sent here to save us
Tomorrow waits tonight rest your head
Sleep now, Sleep my Son
Sleep in peace
 Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

10.   Is There Room
 
(Hilary Weeks)
 
 I can almost see
If I close my eyes
I can almost see her face
 Filled with hope and wonder
She tells Joseph of
The Son she’ll bear one day
 Things she has kept in her heart
Things only she has known
Now Joseph too will know
 So with a prayer in her heart
And a babe inside
She tells what must be told
 As Mary looks at Joseph and waits for his reply
I wonder if this silent question crossed her mind
 Is there room
Is there room in your heart
Will you let this Miracle in
God’s own Son
God’s own Son has come to save us
Born for me and you
Is there room
 I can almost see
That holy night
As a new star lights the sky
 And Mary patiently waits
As Joseph faithfully makes
One more, one last try
 And Joseph knows the time is close as he knocks at the door
When the keeper of the inn appears Joseph asks once more
 Repeat Chorus
 And tonight as I tie the last bow
And put one more gift under the tree
I pause in the middle of all of the bustle
As the Spirit of this season whispers to me
 Repeat Chorus
