Silent Night ~ Spirit of Chirstmas Treasure Hunt

Well...  what I wanted to do for the last post for my Spirit of Chirstmas Treasure Hunt was something similar to what I did --- here --- but I am having a bit of trouble locating what I wanted to show you. 



*argh*  However, it will not turn me into a "Scrooge" and I will just share what I wanted to show you!

I have seen the Christmas carol, "Silent Night" sung in sign language and it is beautiful.  If you do a search, you will come up with a bunch of videos that are really neat.  However, I could not find one that featured a deaf choir.  Those are incredible! 

I did find a really fun little video of  the Carol Festival Christmas Medley from the Evangelical School for the Deaf Handbell choir  - these kids are so cute.  It's amazing to me that they can play music that they can't hear - and have fun doing it!

Hope you have enjoyed our Spirit of Chirstmas Treasure Hunt.  Remember - today is your last day to comment for a chance to win!  How simple is it to win some treasure in our Treasure Hunt? This simple!

Hope you all have a blessed Advent Season and that you are enjoying all of the fun that the holidays bring.  Just so that you can have a song echoing in your head all day *winks* here is the last verse of "Silent Night".
Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

And, as Tiny Tim said ~ "God bless us every one!"  Have a 'Merry Christmas' kind of day!

  3. Thanks, Marlene. I wonder if she is in the tree this year - haven't been to Lorie's house yet. hehe - now that she is full grown, that could be a little bit crazy! LOL!

    Pam - she is a cute kitty =) My sister played handbells, too. I figured it is a combination of vibration, watching the director, and carefully counting the timing. At one time (about 15 years ago) there was a young woman who played drums for the symphony in London and she was totally deaf. She played barefoot and she could feel the vibrations through the wooden stage floor as well as watch for the director's cues. I love to see people succeed in spite of disabilities or adversity. It is very encouraging to me!

  5. Thanks, Pam - I hope to share the lives of more people who have overcome obstacles. It inspires me to focus on what I can do and not what I can't do!
