Happy Christmas

As you know I love the Beatles. But they don't have a Christmas song that I'm totally in LOVE with. But John Lennon does. It's called Happy Christmas (The war is over). I know the song is Christmas song protesting the Vietnam War. I don't know if I said this before: just because I LOVE the Beatles, it does not mean I support their political views. This song I love because of a couple different reasons. 

So this is Xmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Xmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

I like these lyrics cause he's(John Lennon) is asking you to review your year. What have you done with your year. In my year, I have found the help I need to battle this disease. I love the part "A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Let's hope it's a good one without any fear" I'm going into 2014 without any fear in my life. I know God will take care of me. I know he will handle my disease. 

War is over, if you want it
War is over now

Like I said I know this song is about a protest against the Vietnam war, but I'm taking these words out of context. I think John Lennon is talking about any war. A war with yourself, a war against a disease, a physical war. But any war can be over if you want it to be. We just have to give it to God. My war is over. My dad just said something really inspiring. "You've declared victory" and he's so right! My God is bigger than any old IC or any disease! 

Merry Christmas everyone! I'll see you 2014!
