2019 Christmas Music Marathon – Day 22


The marathon is moving very quickly toward the finish line. I have decided that I will most likely go dark for the week after Christmas. I believe I am going to upgrade and rework the blog site.  So that means there will not be any encore performances this season and since we have one week less between Thanksgiving and Christmas I have a lot of music left to share. Let’s get on with the celebration.

Every married couple that has experienced the birth of their first child knows one thing for sure, a baby changes everything. The circumstances of Christ’s birth not only changed the lives of Mary and Joseph but it was God’s promise fulfilled to change the hearts and lives of all mankind.

The Christmas season provides endless photo opportunities. Hopefully, I can get out and about to capture a few images of what is going on around our town. Today was cold, wet, and just generally unpleasant. Tomorrow should be a better day. It’s easy for us to postpone doing things we would like to do  or, more importantly, we need to do, just because it is a bit of an inconvenience. God has provided us with a path to eternal life through His Son, Jesus Christ. All we have to do is accept that gift through faith. It is the only way to obtain eternal life. The decision is ours and there is no better time than Christmas to make Christ the center of our life. Have a blessed Holiday season.

Christmas 2010

One of the blessings of Christmas is family. One blessing that our family has enjoyed is that we live in the same town, so we get to see each other on a somewhat regular basis. My wife and I have been able to watch the grandkids grow  up. We’ve attended baseball games, soccer matches, track meets, dance competitions, choir concerts and more. Each year we get to celebrate Christmas together even if only for the day. My your Christmas be filled with the joy that only family can bring. Merry Christmas.
