'Different Kind of Christmas' - Live From Mark Schultz

If you are missing a loved one this holiday season, then ‘Different Kind Of Christmas’ from Mark Schultz will truly resonate with your heart.


‘Putting candles in the windows
Lights upon the tree
But there's no laughter in this house
Not like there used to be
There's just a million little memories
That remind me you're not here
It's just a different kind of Christmas this year’

The Christmas season can be an especially difficult time if you are missing a family member or loved one. Artist and performer Mark Schultz is no stranger to heartache. In fact, his own personal loss is what inspired him to write ‘Different Kind Of Christmas.’ ‘This is a special song that was written to honor my wife's father who passed away two years ago. If you've ever had to go through the Christmas season after losing a loved one, I hope this encourages you.’

‘There's one less place set at the table
One less gift under the tree
And a brand new way to take their place inside of me
I'm unwrapping all these memories
Fighting back the tears
It's just a different kind of Christmas this year’

Over the years, the powerful words have provided comfort to those with an ache in their heart. It’s always hard to look at that empty space at our table, but we can find peace knowing that our loved ones are truly in better place in Heaven. We will all be reunited one day and that will be a glorious day, indeed. Until that time, we will continue to pray and give comfort to those in need.
