Sunday Carol Series: Joy to the World

My favorite “Soul David” carol:

Joy on a Loop

And wonders and wo-o-o-nders / oooooooooooof hi-i-is / h-i-s loooooooooooove!!!

Yeah, I’m back to my ODD Christmas from the Heart habits.  And I’m stuck on David’s ridiculously “takin’ it to church” long notes on this baby! 🙂

In other news, David was featured on EXTRA (how did I miss this? Of course, I wouldn’t know what channel I would have found this treat)

The Voice That Sets You Weeping

It didn’t take long for me to dust off my Christmas from the Heart album by our favorite artist, now that I’m getting hearth and home ready for my Thanksgiving guests.  But how quickly I forgot about the impact of the Voice.

Inexplicably and without warning, “What Child is This” started playing, which set me to weeping in the middle of my errands.  It’s just one of those songs you can’t just let play in the background while doing other things.  It commands your attention, you stop what you’re doing, and you let those soul-piercing vocals enter into you.  Washed and renewed like the newly baptized, you tremble, and then you weep.

I had forgotten the power of The Voice.  And this song just brought it back.

I need to remember to keep playing this album when I have folks over.  There’s still work to be done for others to discover the power and the truth behind David.

Back on the Radar Again

What say you, Archies? Are you loving this red backdrop in the promos for David’s Christmas from the Heart on itunes?

Memories of Christmas in October

Last year around this time, I was so inspired by The Voice who gave us “Christmas from the Heart.”

Just starting the holiday season two months early (who wouldn’t when we’ve got David Archuleta to listen to?) 🙂
