Christmas Shoes

by - 8:14 PM

This song is so sad but I really love this song. The message of the song is great. It has been one of my favorite Christmas songs since the first time I heard it. I wish everyone could give or share a love as sincere and as pure as this little boy's love to his mother. I know almost everyone's busy decorating and shopping stuffs especially that Christmas eve is near coming. I hope all these busy people remembers what Christmas really is all about. Sometimes the smallest things in life can make all the difference.

Don't forget to PAUSE my blog's music background (control is at the left side bar) before you play the video below.



Here's the Lyrics of the song.

The Christmas Shoes

It was almost Christmas time,
there I stood in another line

Tryin' to buy that last gift or two,
not really in the Christmas mood

Standing right in front of me
was a little boy waiting anxiously

Pacing 'round like little boys do
And in his hands he held a pair of shoes

His clothes were worn and old,
he was dirty from head to toe

And when it came his time to pay
I couldn't believe what I heard him say

[Chorus:]
Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know these shoes would make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful
if Mama meets Jesus tonight


He counted pennies for what seemed like years
Then the cashier said, "Son, there's not enough here"
He searched his pockets frantically
Then he turned and he looked at me
He said Mama made Christmas good at our house Though most years she just did without
Tell me Sir, what am I going to do,
Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes

So I laid the money down, I just had to help him out
I'll never forget the look on his face when he said
Mama's gonna look so great

Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know these shoes would make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight

[Bridge:]
I knew I'd caught a glimpse of heaven's love
As he thanked me and ran out
I knew that God had sent that little boy
To remind me just what Christmas is all about.


Merry Christmas Everyone!

    The message seems to be:
    The poor are dirty.
    Kids don't mind if mon dies as long as she dies for Jesus.
    In the hereafter, Jesus will be more interested in our appearance than in our souls.
    What Christmas is all about means making sure everyone has money for material goods, not just ourselves. After all, who ever heard of a love offering being a hug?
    Those expensive shoes your kids want you to buy at the mall? They just might mean spiritual salvation, not just status and popularity.

  4. That's interesting to hear even though you have chosen to be anonymous. I don't agree with your opinion though, but I respect it, you are entitled to it.
