I know Christmas day is over. The new year will begin tomorrow. The meaning of this song applies to any time of the year.
Today is a special day … it’s the day when the year ends. We’ve had all kinds of experiences …. good or bad, happy or sad. Our world has gone through many changes in many ways.
It’s time to hope, to plan, to envision … better things!
Let’s hope for a year of good tidings … personal and worldwide!!
~SHE HAS GROWN SO BEAUTIFULLY~
Jacqueline Marie “Jackie” Evancho (born April 9, 2000) is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts.
Evancho is the ambassador for Mission: Humane, a U.S. Humane Society program that encourages children to help protect animals. A national cotillion organization listed her as one of the “ten best-mannered people of 2011”. From late 2012 to 2014, she toured the U.S., performing songs from her fourth full-length album, Songs from the Silver Screen, released in October 2012, which was Evancho’s third top-ten album debut. In 2013 she also headlined benefit concerts at Carnegie Hall and the LDS Conference Center.
She appeared in the 2013 Robert Redford film The Company You Keep, modeled for Guess Kids clothing, among others, and has appeared on behalf of such charities as One Drop Foundation. Evancho released her fifth full-length album, Awakening, in September 2014, which was her fifth consecutive No. 1 release on the Billboard Classical Albums chart.
Children, sleeping. Snow is softly falling. Dreams are calling, Like bells in the distance. We were dreamers, Not so long ago. But one by one, we All had to grow up.
When it seems the magic slipped away… We find it all again on Christmas Day.
Believe in what your heart is saying, Hear the melody that’s playing. There’s no time to waste, There so much to celebrate. Believe in what you feel inside, Give your dreams the wings to fly. You have everything you need, if you just believe.
Trains move quickly To their journey’s end. Destinations… Are where we begin again. Ships go sailing, Far across the sea. Trusting starlight, To get where they need to be.
When it seems that we have lost our way… We find ourselves again on Christmas Day.
Believe in what your heart is saying, Hear the melody that’s playing There’s no time to waste, There so much to celebrate. Believe in what you feel inside, And give your dreams the wings to fly. You have everything you need, if you just Believe.
If you just believe. If you just believe. If you just believe. If you just believe ….
