May the Christ of Christmas grant you peace and give you a full measure of hope for 2013.   If your reading this on the frontpage of my website, then the end of the world did not happen on December 21 as predicted by some. The fact that we are still here is a clear reminder of the fact that all of us have a brand new opportunity to embrace the Christmas season with a sense of expectation and excitement. It is my hope for all of you that Christ will be really close to you this Christmas and in the coming year. As a thank you to God for his great gift I wrote this new Christmas song called  Gloria. Please have a listen to it (or some of my other songs) in the audio player and if you would like to download any of the tracks please visit iTunes at the link below. You can listen to a sample and have opportunity to purchases it on iTunes by clicking here Grace & Peace to you all Margaret
