A few weeks ago our Peanut girl shared an entry from her songwriting journal with us. Normally very protective and secretive of her lyrics, she loved this arrangement enough to ask my husband and I if we’d share it with our local Christian radio station (KLRC). The song is a beautiful expression of her faith and it moved us. Rev and I decided that we wanted to make a present out of her lyrics so I called some fabulous musician friends and asked them to expand on her creation. With only a few days until the holidays, and with no professional sound equipment, we met in Matt & Johanna’s living room last night to record “The First Christmas”. I cut it with some rough footage (I don’t normally shoot video so it’s VERY rough) of my daughter singing and writing in her song journal. Pajamas, hair in a pony tail, barefoot…this is our beautiful girl and her raw talent. Thank you M & J for helping us create a present that our darling 8 year old will never forget. You two are amazing and we’re thankful for your talent. She has no idea what we’re doing so feel free to leave a comment below for her and she’ll get to see them on Christmas morning! I wanted to share the song early because it truly leaves us in tears and I hope the creativity from our child brings joy to your holiday season.
Happy Holidays from the Crafton family!
