Since we are now officially into the Christmas season I thought it would be appropriate to feature a Christmas song in today’s Music Monday post. The selection is my favorite arrangement of Jingle Bells. This is Diana Krall featuring the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. Merry Christmas!
Today’s Sunday Scripture is from today’s sermon from Micah Carter at ClearView Baptist Church. He taught from Philippians chapter 4 and 1 Timothy chapter 6 about what it means to be content.
