Christmas music, hot coffee and cold weather

     The day before Halloween was cold and perfect for the start of the holiday season. Well, it was 45 degrees F which in Louisiana is considered the dead of winter. This most recent cold snap only lasted two days but it was amazing. Today the temperature is in the 70’s again but we take what we can get in the South. Our house did have an unusual amount of Trick or Treaters this year.  Maybe it was because of the cold weather but something brought a steady stream of kids for several hours. We gave out individually wrapped pretzels and mini-packs of Skittles to some scary ghost, zombies and some cowboys and princesses. It was a fun night. I did take advantage of the cooler weather and opened the fireplace this week. With the cool mornings and iHeart Radio we were jamming to Christmas music every morning this week. We normally kick off the Christmas season at our house on November 1st but this year we started a few days early. So now on this Thursday afternoon I’m working hard at the Journey Cafe bar to put the finishing touch on this weeks sermon and listening to Christmas music. I wish you could hear Frank Sinatra sing “I’ll be home for Christmas”, he’s killing it. Im about to pour you a cup of coffee.... Merry Christmas. Here’s to cold weather and hot coffee and the best Music known to humanity.
