Wishing all of you and your families a very happy and safe holiday during this Christmas season!
Since the Christmas season of 2007, I have created a total of 13 different mixes of Christmas music that (hopefully) provide a pleasant musical soundtrack for you to enjoy during this most joyous time of the year. Since the individual posts for those mixes are spread out over the site, I thought I would post the links to all of them here in one convenient place for you to download.
You can left-click on the mix name to be taken to the original post for that mix or you can right-click on the “MP3 file” link or the “PDF playlist” link to download the files.
Again, Happy Holidays and a very, Merry Christmas from my family to yours!

Sorry for the silence around here the past few weeks. Things have been quite busy/crazy over here for a while and I didn’t get much time to play in the kitchen as a result.
Basically, it’s one of those times when all you can say is, “I’ve been going through some thangs, lately.” You know what I’m talking about, we all go through some “thangs” from time to time. As a matter of fact, I have a few friends that are going through some thangs themselves right now. I won’t name names (this is not that kind of a site) but I do wish them well and they stay in my prayers.
Speaking of prayers, that is a perfect lead-in to the mix today. Things have been swirling around me so fast lately that I’ve losing track of which way is up. It’s at times like that that you need something to hold on to, something solid that can steady you and calm you in a time of turmoil. And that something is our faith… our belief in God.
So, in trying to navigate the craziness of the past few weeks, I decided to put together a Gospel themed mix, some sounds of inspiration and praise by some of our contemporary Gospel artists and some R&B/Soul artists that we know and love.
Remember, God won’t ever give you more than you can handle. Or, like they say in one of this week’s songs, “Maybe God is trying to tell you something”…
