Joy of Christmas
Christmas has forever been my favorite time of the year. As a boy, I enjoyed the special decorations, the food, songs, and of course the presents. I did not have a full appreciation of Christmas until I became an adult. The true meaning is, of course, the celebration of the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. This CD is a collection of my favorite Christmas songs, both secular and non-secular. As you listen, may you reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and also enjoy the festive holiday songs which were my favorites as a young lad. I was inspired to write After The Rain as I witnessed the courage and determination that was echoed by the Hurricane Katrina victims. News reports conveyed their feelings of losing everything. This song was written in their honor. Through their tears of joy they expressed what was really important to them...life.
