The Whole Year Long backstory

In 2018 my singer/songwriter wife released her second album, a collection of Christmas songs. The impetus behind going through the arduous and expensive process was Mary’s dad, Harold Ledgerwood, insisting that we record his favorite song of hers, “Glory”. He was very disappointed when he heard that her first album didn’t include his favorite song.

Mary told him that it didn’t fit on her first album because “Glory” was a Christmas song. “Well,” he said in his Indiana drawl, “then record a Christmas CD!” It seemed impossible at the time but the time and funds and travel all seemed to come together to allow us to put “Glory” on Mary’s Christmas CD, “The Whole Year Long”. Unfortunately, Harold passed away before the project was complete. We believe that Harold is now with Jesus and enveloped in God’s glory.

We missed sharing the song with Harold in his season of life. Sometimes life is shorter than we expect. The CD is titled saying the whole year long but the reality is, the Christmas season is a thin wedge of calendar where this CD is welcome and relevant. We are hoping to share this song and the CD with more people by posting about it on my blog. Here is a link to the the YouTube post of her song. You can listen for free. If you like it, please share it with your friends and family.

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas! May this Christmas season bring you closer to Jesus our savior.

I am a man. I am an older man. I am a husband and a dad and a grandpa. I am a disciple of Jesus. Because I am a disciple of Jesus much of what I write is about him, and I usually end what I write with a question, do you the reader know that Jesus loves you? He does. He loves us all but he loves you specifically. He loves me specifically. What will you do with that information today?
