The other day I was doing the annual lawnmower/snowblower maintenance dance while listening to Elvis. I finished the oil changes and fired up the mower for the first time of the season.
At the end of the mowing (small yard, long playlist) came Elvis singing “Oh Come All Ye Faithful.”
I shut out the world for a few minutes and listened to the words. It’s one of my favorites.
As I listened, it dawned on me that most of you probably don’t like Christmas music as much as I do. I thrive on the stuff. You probably get sick of it every year. I, on the other hand, love listening and know all the words. You see, unlike the majority of you who despise the commercial nature of the season in the modern world, I get what it is all about for some. Besides, while I acknowledge that Easter is more in the spirit of the religion and why we are so blessed with grace, have you ever heard a decent Easter carol?
Hmmmm? Have you? Of course not. So put down your burden, open your ears, and worship the fact Jesus was born to save us all. I choose to do it with one of the greatest voices of all time. It will only take a few minutes of your time, and I pretty much promise that it will brighten up your Monday.

When you finish reading any book (especially mine) please review it at www.amazon.com, www.barnesandnoble.com, and www.goodreads.com. Your review increases the chances of someone looking for a new book greatly. Authors appreciate your review, even if it is just “I thought this was a good read and will give it to my dog to chew. I especially liked the ending, because it made me feel better when he killed all of the main characters. (no spoilers, please)” Those few words (more than 20, fewer than 1,000 is ideal), and a 1-5 rating, make or break how the search engines find us. Thanks in advance.
