Mike's mom, sister and nephew,Nathan are the visible audience… 
Don, daughter Olivia, the grands, and I were grateful listeners too! (Thanks for filming this, Liv!)

Ho Ho Ho - If santa was talking

Ho Ho Ho- If santa was talking
Wrap it up! Wrap it up! 
Christmas is knocking!
(I consider the countdown and then begin balking)
You don’t own the day I say with a sneer
God came as a babe bringing true Christmas cheer!
Matt 1:24, Luke 2:10, 11

In my Father's house are many mansions!

Grand blessings singing a mouthful of promises (and Mama Olivia's lovely background vocals!!) Our little Olivia, all grown up and now a mama!! Wasn't it just yesterday when she was a little girl singing the same verse?!!! “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.” Thomas *said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:1-6
