Quote from David:
“What a privilege it was to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year! It made me long for a time when every tree had multi-colored lights, doorways were always dressed with mistletoe, stores were closed on Christmas Eve and families gathered in living rooms around crackling radios tuned in to Frank Sinatra singing ‘The First Noel.’ And what could bring more joy than singing about the history-changing birth of our Savior, Jesus. I never get tired of writing and singing songs about His entry into the story of humanity and our lives.” --David
