Scroll down below this entry to hear Christmas Songs.
"Christmas is both a sacred religious holiday and a worldwide cultural and commercial phenomenon. For two millenniums, people around the world have been observing it with traditions and practices that are both religious and secular in nature. Christians celebrate Christmas Day as the anniversary of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, a spiritual leader whose teachings form the basis of their religion. Popular customs include exchanging gifts, decorating Christmas trees, attending church, sharing meals with family and friends and, of course, waiting for Santa Claus to arrive. December 25–Christmas Day–has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1870." Source: http://www.history.com/content/christmas

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary
Because it means you've made a difference.
It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.
GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessing.
Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.
- William Arthur Ward
No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.
- James Allen

We look, we see, we take for granted the colors that bounce into our line of vision. We did not give our self the ability to see. We did not give our self the ability to see in color. Let us be full of gratitude for our ability to see our world in colors.
Come, travel with me as we watch our world unfold into magnificent realms of color.

"This new presentation is one of the most difficult I've ever made.
Many tears fell from my eyes as I began.
My friend, Denny Martin, who is also a Music Producer and Songwriter in Nashville, sent me this song with a note saying that he had been seeking God's will about sharing his emotional and spiritual journey in song, after losing his 5 year old son to an illness.
Denny has poured his heart into this song and it is his hope and prayer that by sharing "There Must Be A Reason" in this presentation, through God's love, some healing will be passed on to others who have suffered such a devastating and unimaginable trial."
Please do share this flash presentation:

If you wish to listen to some Old Rock n Roll music scroll down to the bottom of this page. Sorry, but Blogger would not allow me to place the html for the music player inside this post.
I grew up dancing and listening to this music. In my opinion it is still the best music available.
Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia about the history and significance of this music to the music of today:
"Rock and roll (often written as rock & roll or rock ’n’ roll) is a form of music that evolved in the United States in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Its roots lay mainly in rhythm and blues, country, folk, gospel, and jazz. The style quickly spread to the rest of the world and developed further, leading ultimately to modern rock music.'
Classic rock and roll is usually played with one or two electric guitars (one lead, one rhythm), a string bass or (after the mid-1950s) an electric bass guitar, and a drum kit. In the earliest rock and roll styles of the late 1940s and early 1950s, either the piano or saxophone was often the lead instrument, but these were generally replaced or supplemented by guitar in the middle to late 1950s. The beat is essentially a boogie woogie blues rhythm with an accentuated backbeat, the latter almost always provided by a snare drum.
The massive popularity and eventual worldwide view of rock and roll gave it a unique social impact. Far beyond simply a musical style, rock and roll, as seen in movies and in the new medium of television, influenced lifestyles, fashion, attitudes, and language. It went on to spawn various sub-genres, often without the initially characteristic backbeat, that are now more commonly called simply "rock music" or "rock".

will help you bring some positive changes into your life...
Just what are affirmations? Or what is an affirmation?
An affirmation is a statement that declares that something is true.
I have never really been one for using affirmations in my life. At least I did not think so. By nature I am basely a positive person. I think my father for this surviving attitude. But on examining my thinking processes, I discovered that although I may not write down affirmations to live toward, I have mentally used affirmations in my life to survive and move on.
I want to discuss with you and encourage you to immediately begin using affirmations in your life. They can be a means for you to accomplish whatever you want too. By using affirmations, you can change your life.
So, just what is an affirmation? To me, and simply put, an affirmation is a positive statement. For instance: “I am happy.” Not, “I will be happy.” Simple example but difficult for most of us to say and comprehend.
Bill Marshall has compiled a free ebook of Power Affirmations or choose to get the CD for $19.00. Below is a small sample from his ebook.
* I am now filled with faith, certainty, and confidence.
* I now create and feel these emotions in my body.
* I am now fearless, courageous, and bold.
* I now relive the most joyous moments of my life. And these moments inspire me to greater *confidence and a greater feeling of self-worth.
* I now walk and move with assurance, poise, and personal power.
* I now achieve my goals with joy and laughter.
* Whenever I set a definite goal, I take immediate action towards its attainment to create and sustain massive momentum.
Get your free Power Affirmations eBook and start changing your life.
Affirmations can be a very powerful avenue of reprogramming our unconscious mind. They can be most effective when repeated in a quiet and restful state of mind and body.
You see, you do have the ability to use your inner being to bring about the changes you wish for in your life. Just how can you do this? By using affirmations.
The strongest and most well-known affirmation used by most of us is the word “Amen”. We do not think of “Amen” as being an affirmation when we say it. But, think of it this way: “Amen” means “so be it”. This word absolutely affirms the truth of whatever was written or said immediately prior to using it.
I do encourage you to write down any affirmations that you can come up with and to begin implementing them into your thinking processes. Start with one affirmation. Write down your affirmation on sticky notes or whatever...place them on your mirror, refrigerator, or where ever you will see them several times a day. Continue to repeat your affirmation to yourself as often as you can during the day.
Begin to visualize the change you are trying to make in your life. Just keep repeating until you believe it...and change will occur...
Below are some affirmations for you from Andrei Yashurin, http://unityway.net/blog
Be sure to sign up for his newsletter, Daily Affirmations.
Affirmation for Responsibility:
* I take complete responsibility for my thoughts, words, and actions.
* I take responsibility for being the person that I am.
* I refuse to spend my energy on blaming myself or others.
* My responsibility is my ability to respond positively to all that happens.
Affirmations for Forgiveness:
* I am set free from mistakes of the past. I accept forgiveness.
* I bless my past experiences, for they brought me to the place of understanding where I am now.
As you can imagine if you implement the use of affirmations into your life you will be richly rewarded.
Blessings to you...
