My friends, it's only 6 weeks till Christmas! That means we only have 6 weeks to listen to Holiday music. I uploaded several songs from my 2 Christmas albums, with hope they add to your Christmas experience, So often we "judge" the holidays, based on memories of Christmases past. Or we're in a holding pattern, waiting for better holidays to come. When I hear Christmas music, it helps me accept a huge truth . . . the past is our history - faith in the future is a blessing - but (coining a delightful cliché) the "present" is a gift. This Christmas is the very best one you've had in a whole year . . . and next Christmas is over a whole year away. Let's embrace this Holiday - celebrate it - share it with love and Christmas music, because, “We Need a Little Christmas.”
Just a note to thank all you who have joined my network. I'm honored! It's a blessing to have the opportunity to discover your beautiful musical creations! We share musical material, thoughts and support. Please know that I have spent hours listening to your creations, and marvelling over your emense diverse talents. Thank you for sharing . . . listening.. . . encouraging and supporting each other and me.
We are turning the corner and nearing the Holiday Season. Christmas music will be everywhere . . . including here. I'll be adding songs from my two Christmas albums soon.
Meanwhile, be well, be happy and keep making beautiful music!
This is the title song of my newest album. I love the message this song offers . . . Love is the the singular, most beautiful gift God has given us. Imagine a World where love doesn't exist. Nobody loves anyone or anything. What would we have to smile about? Money? House? Car? These, as you probably know, provide very temporary contentment. The one thing that makes even the most unhappy person smile . . . everyday . . . is love. Love makes difficult times bearable, and wonderful times more joyous. Thank you, God, for the gift of LOVE.
Here we are . . . heading straight into the end of 2017. So much to look forward to, including holidays, gifts, family and music.
I want to thank all of you for your support this year. One of the most wonderful and valuable experiences for any musician comes from the encouragement they receive from appreciative listeners and fans? I wonder if you know how important you are to us. I'm so very grateful and flattered by your attention. Many of you have taken the time to write to me. Thank you so much.
I'll be uploading songs from my new album today. "Love Lifted Me" is a collection of my favorite Inspirational songs. Some of them are contemporary, and others go back to 1912. All of them have messages of hope, encouragement, promise and gratitude. ' You best start pulling those warmer clothes out of storage . . . cooler weather is on the way. Advice for all, except me. I'm in Florida. Cold weather for us is 72 degrees. I do miss the beautiful Fall colors and the peaceful quiet of a snow covered yard. However, no matter where we live, we find beauty in the unique landscape, wonderful people and exciting seasons. I wish you the very best of all of these!
I welcome your comments and look forward to sharing thoughts and ideas with you.
