What made Christmas great this year?

This Christmas isn’t like some. We’re not little kids rushing to bed and laying there listening for Santa’s sleigh bells.
But the best thing about Christmas is Jesus coming to be our help and guide, and changed all of history since that day.
This Christmas we aren’t doing decorating, not tree and no gifts, just hoping some loved one’s enjoy the day celebrating Jesus Birthday.
We enjoy giving, and realizing how fast the years have gone. Someone on the Gaither’s sang this song Saturday and it reminds me of how past the years fly by!!! Wr’ve been blessed with 54 Christmas’ together,except Vietnam, and blessed our whole life through!
I will try and see who wrote it, but in the meantime, please enjoy!

[Verse 1]
I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did
It seems like the day before yesterday I was just a little snotty-nosed kid
That shock of hair that I had back there went away and hid, Yeah, it did
But I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did

[Verse 2]
Well I’d have thought for sure Jesus would’ve come back by now
(Thought he would, thought he would)
I still believe someday I’ll see Him
Riding that big white horse through the clouds
I believe it even more right now than I did when I was a kid
Still I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did
(They thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did)

[Verse 3]
And I hope I have a few more years before they close that lid
Ah, come on, Larry
We’ve had more fun already than I’d really like to admit
Still I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer (2x)
Still I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did
Oh, come on, Kevin, show us your stuff

[Verse 4]
I’d thought by now I’d have more money than I do
(Thought he would, thought he would)
Oh, but God knows best, we’ve all been blessed
(with more than enough to see us through)
And I wouldn’t trade places with anyone else, Heaven and God forbid
Still I thought gettin’ older would take a lot longer than it did

[Outro]
Now this simple song is just two minutes long
Come on, —–, who we trying to kid?
But it sure seems like it took a lot longer than it did
(Thank the Lord)
