The Christmas Song, Mel Torme 1945

"The Christmas Song" sometimes titled "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire" or, as it was originally subtitled, "Merry Christmas to You" is a classic Christmas song written in 1945 by Robert Wells and Mel Torme. 
According to Torme, the song was written in July during a blistering hot summer. In an effort to "stay cool by thinking cool", the most-performed Christmas song was born. "I saw a spiral pad on his (Wells's) piano with four lines written in pencil", Torme recalled. "They started, 'Chestnuts roasting..., Jack Frost nipping..., Yuletide carols..., Folks dressed up like Eskimos.' Bob didn't think he was writing a song lyric. He said he thought if he could immerse himself in winter he could cool off. Forty minutes later that song was written. I wrote all the music and some of the lyrics." 
The Nat King Cole Trio first recorded the song in June 1946. 
Dedicated to all beautiful peoples of our world! 
Peace and Joy is my wish for all!!!

Will You Choose

Will You Choose is born as a Collaboration Project from Danny aka "Theforgotten toy box" aka "danthecoat" from "".
His idea came in as a chord progression, and some melody lines.
His graciousness and generosity allowed me free reins on any direction I need to go in terms of lyrics and melody.

The tune inspired me to write about our choices in life, and the possibilities we gain.

This song is dedicated to all suffering peoples of our world, especially the dying and the sick. Peace, hope, and consolation fill your hearts and mind.

Will you become, what you should be
Embrace His love, carry your cross
His Resurrection, our eternal salvation
Choose to follow, embrace His love

Questions unanswered, don’t be confused
He has the answers, just heed His words
Paths of life, told in the parables
Open your mind, hear His voice

You and I, we are blinded...

I Am the Mother of God, Praying for All

I received the good news from / the Angel Gabriel:
An Immaculate Conception / through the Spirit.
A child born for mankind's / salvation.
A child bringing peace to the earth.
A child bringing joy to each heart.

I am // the Mother of God, praying for all.
Interceding for all through Jesus, my Son,
Bringing praise and petitions to the Father of All.
You can trust in His love, my children.

Salvation is promised to all who believe.
Confess with your lips that / Jesus is Lord!
Believe that God raised Him up / from the dead.
Announce and carry forth / the good news
That Jesus walks with us, as the Spirit rejoices.

Glory to the Lord, Jesus, Alleluia.
As the Mother of God, I'll guide you / in his ways.
I will never leave you,/ I will always care.
Come, let me lead you / to Him.
All glory, laud and honor to / Father, Son and Spirit.
