I usually try to make it to at least one Christmas concert each year. Last year I was thrilled to see Christy Nockels in concert with her family. The concert was an intimate setting, almost like sitting in Christy’s living room, singing Christmas songs together. A song that I went to the concert liking and left loving was Christmas Amaryllis.

Like an Amaryllis, blooming at Christmas,
When everything was cold and dark
Your love broke through and You shined
With the brilliance of summer,
Right in the middle of winter!
You came surprising the night,
Like a Christmas Amaryllis…

At the concert, Christy shared the story behind the song and did so in such a way that it gave me chills. I actually went out to the store and purchased an Amaryllis as a reminder of what Christy shares in the video below.
