Merry Christmas!!

I want to say thank you to all of my readers!! Thank you all so much for all your wonderful comments, and for sticking by me when there were no posts for weeks at a time. Thank you for being *extremely* patient in my getting around to visit because with three kids, a ministry, and a husband, things just take time!

I hope I have inspired you to not only make your home a little cozier with things you already have or can make, but that I inspire you to give to others--especially those in need.

Last week I posted a 1993 (I was 12, lol) version of "O Holy Night" that I put on youtube for my mom. This year, I recorded a Christmas CD for my dad, so I have included a newer version of "O Holy Night" for you all and a jazzy "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town." The house in "O Holy Night" is the one my dad grew up in, so that is why I used it for him.

This is such a wonderful community of people and I am so very thankful for each and every one of you!! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!!

Anita

I'll be joining At the Picket Fence for Inspiration Friday...

  6. Beautiful! Love your voice! My daughter started singing opera this year and will be working with a voice coach this year. We're so excited for her!

    Our adoption of the little girl in Ethiopia is almost final. We're officially her parents and are waiting for the embassy to review her case so we can bring her home. Stop by and take a look at her when you have a chance.

    Merry Christmas!!

  10. Thank you Anita! Your voice is that of an angel and I love that you are using it so beautifully! I will be sharing these with my FB friends as well for the holidays. I like to share music with them on Christmas Eve. Last year's "O Holy Night" was one of my favorites, Celine Dion, this year's version will be Anita!!! :))) Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    I have been exiled due to my computer, but I finally got it back. Let's hope it can make it through the New Year. Speaking of which, Happy New Year to you, my friend! May it be everything you could ever hope for it to be!
