The Gifts of Midwinter is the title track to the Christmas album by Ken and Lisa Theriot. The song was written by Lisa Theriot. And as today is the Winter Solstice – or Midwinter’s Day, it’s the perfect day to write about this beautiful song.
Faith, hope and love are the powerful gifts that the midwinter brings – faith that we will see the light and feel the warmth again, hope for good all the good things to come, and love that is more cherished as we are brought closer together to ward off the cold.
In the liner notes for the album, Lisa writes:

snowman-building with my husband and son. Some
occasions just put everything into perspective….
