A Mostly Gene Autry Christmas

Welcome to the annual Christmas Concert to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

 

I grew up listening to Gene Autry Christmas music meaning Christmas isn’t Christmas to me unless I get to sing along to his timeless songs at least once during the holidays:

 

Who hasn’t sympathized with Rudolph? I looked forward to the cartoon every year as a child.

 

 

 

I still love the idea of Frosty. This is a great song full of magic.

 

A duet with Rosemary Clooney.

 

 

 

This next one isn’t a Gene Autry song but it’s good for a giggle so I’m including it:

 

And last but not least:

 

Merry Christmas, y’all! And Happy New Year.

 

Peace.

Resurrection

The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.  ~Robert Flat

Resurrection means rising from the dead or the revival of something old or unused. It can also mean recovery.

We are taught Christ died to save us from our sins. I am thankful for this sacrifice but there is more to it than that. His death and rising teaches that when you touch the bottom of life you can push-off and reach the surface again.  In the midst of such horror and despair there is positivity.

The little Chinese Water Dragon had its own resurrection this week so I think it appropriate to talk about it on today of all days. I don’t think God will mind.

When Tracey asked me if we could take the little dragon the key phrase she used was “Jane doesn’t have the money to feed her anymore.” Jane is not her real name but it’ll do. I knew there might be problems but I was totally unprepared for what came through my front door.
