2012 Christmas Music Marathon-Day 1

Click on badge to view other participants. 

Today marks the return of two of my favorite things. It's been a long time since I posted a Skywatch Friday and today marks the beginning of the 2012 Christmas Music Marathon. When I was posting to Skywatch Friday on a regular basis, I would also post an inspirational song for the week. I will return to that practice as well. Black Friday marks the true beginning of the Christmas season for the retail world. We will be overwhelmed with product ads trying to get us to purchase things that we probably don't need. We just survived a political campaign in which two candidates tried to persuade us that they were best suited to run the country, and now it's time to endure endless Christmas ads. Let's take a few moments each day for the next few weeks to focus on the real reason for the season. A Savior is born. Let's "Take a Walk Through Bethlehem". Let the season begin!

  4. Great Skywatch Friday shot. Really great.

    I don't do the Christmas shopping thing too much. Do for our annual toy drive. A few things for our great grand baby and that's it. They don't get much from us. Jesus is the reason for the season.

    I love this song and the performer. Awesome. Great start of your Annual Christmas Marathon.

    Have a terrific day. :)
