For a long time I've felt that a lot of people in this world had either forgotten the true meaning of Christmas, or didn't really know what it means at all! I've felt a strong desire and need to record some gospel songs that tell about that glorious day. "The reason for the season," to coin an old phrase.
The Holy Spirit provided us with just the type of songs we wanted to record. Dave Freeman of Rebel Records has once again been so kind and gracious to help us with this release that I feel with all my heart will touch people's hearts and maybe cause them to reflect on how wonderfully blessed we all are. Had it not been for the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we would have no hope today! I praise Him for His goodness grace and mercy. I truly believe this recording will be a blessing to each one that listens to it - I believe it will cause people to realize that there is a Heaven to gain and a Hell to shun.
God's Holy Spirit led us to record these songs, blessed us while we recorded them, and I believe will bless others as well when they hear the message that's in these spirit-filled songs.
