December Stories and Songs, Part 10
Today there's one of my very favorite stories. I read it more than once on Christmas Eve at my church in City of Lakes. It has a message that a lot of us are wanting to hear this year, when both our hearts and our wallets are saying that we need to discover ways to celebrate without spending. The message is about what is enough, and the book is Star Mother's Youngest Child, by Louise Moeri.
There are dozens of Christmas songs about stars, but I felt that this one, which doesn't actually say anything about Christmas, had the best feel to go with this story. Oh, Watch the Stars is sung by Mike, Penny, and Peggy Seeger on the album American Folk Songs for Christmas.
