Eight days a week……on the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…..It’s day eight. That’s one week and one day day or one week and the first day of a second week or simply eight days which is what we’ll go with. 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to read my stories and thoughts and take part in this 12 Days of Christmas event. We’re gonna start with the good stuff for you. As some of you may remember I told you that the Day 7 special will still be good today which was to to receive a FREE “Rock-N-Happy Dance Party REMIX” CD with any “Rock-N-Happy Heart” CD, DVD or Combo purchase. All you have to do is buy a “Rock-N-Happy Heart” CD for instance and you get a Remix CD for free. Use code: day7remix but that’s not all. It’s Day 8 so you also have the option of a FREE Hatch Show Print poster with any “Have A Fancy Yancy Christmas” DVD or Ministry Combo CD/DVD order. Just put in the code: day8poster. Hatch Show Print is a legendary poster show in downtown Nashville. Their unique old letterpress designs are completely original and uniquely them. This poster is a $12.95 value and you get it completely free. 🙂 It’s super groovy.

“The First Noel” is my favorite Christmas carols. It was immediate on my list of songs that I wanted to do. When you think of all the Christmas CD’s out there most of them don’t have “The First Noel” and I don’t know why. I love the song. It’s simplistic in form but tells the story of Jesus’ birth with a beautiful melody and lyric. For those that don’t know the word “noel” means “Christmas”. I was really pleased with how the song turned out. It has more piano than any other song on the record. Some of you may not realize that I play piano…it’s actually my first instrument and my musical brain thinks on a piano not a guitar. I’m always thrilled when the ebony and ivory makes an appearance on my songs. I hope as you listen you’ll worship Jesus as you sing along “Born is the King of Israel.” Remember the Bible tells us one day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. I hope you don’t wait for that final day to come before you realize that Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords. I hope today you’ll make that choice if you haven’t already. It’s the perfect season to bow down and worship. He’s not just a babe lying in a manger. He lived a sinless life, died on a cross and rose again. He is alive and well in Heaven waiting for you….loving you but it’s your choice to accept Him.

Just as a friendly reminder you only have 13 days left to shop before Christmas. That’s less than 2 weeks my friends. Christmastime is here…happiness and cheer 🙂 Talk to you more tomorrow.

Love and blessings,
