Carol of the Bells is a song that has been a favorite of mine for many years. I’ve sort of been known for

performing it around Christmas time as well, and so when I was writing music for my “Winter

Symphony” album, I knew I wanted to include this song.

I wanted it to be a very cinematic version of the music, and so it’s with great pride that this music video

turned out as beautiful as it did – because I feel that it fits the music so well.

This music video features the beautiful and talented 16 year old Carolynne May Guinup as the ballerina.

She endured some very cold weather dancing through the forest of the Olympic Peninsula in

Washington in the month of November. Give her a thumbs up for that! d And YES, we did haul a real

antique grand piano into the forest as well! Someone asked if it was “photoshopped”. No, indeed not.

WATCH the BEHIND-the-SCENES Video for ALLELUIA:

The Latin text is:

Alleluia, Alleluia (a praise to God)
Gloria
Dignus est Agnus (Worthy is the Lamb)

In Excelsis Deo (Glory to God)
Et in terra pax (Peace On Earth)
Alleluia, Alleluia

STORY BEHIND THE VIDEO

The story of “Alleluia” is based on the scripture from Matthew 18:12 “If a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?”

A young shepherd boy loses one of his lambs and journeys into the wilderness to look for it, and along the way sees the star of David (the Christmas star), which leads him to the Christ child and his lost lamb. Anna, a runaway teen has had a rough life and is on a journey of hope. The video encompasses the feeling of peace and hope, with the idea that we are all lost sheep, and Jesus is the shepherd who does not let one lost sheep go astray.

On the Lord’s Errand: The Life of Thomas S. Monson

This biography of President Thomas S. Monson’s life highlights some of his great memories and experiences. Included in this video are interviews with President Monson, family members, and friends

In the office of President Thomas S. Monson hangs a painting of the Savior, a portrayal of the Lord Jesus Christ by famed artist Heinrich Hofmann. President Monson has had the painting since he was a bishop in the 1950s. It represents an ideal example—the Master after whom Thomas Monson has modeled his life.

“I love that painting,” President Monson says as he gazes at it yet again. “I feel strength in having it near me. Look at the kindness in those eyes. Look at the warmth of expression. When facing difficult situations, I often look at it and ask myself, ‘What would He do?’ Then I have tried to respond accordingly.”

Tess of the d’Urbervilles Audiobook by Thomas Hardy | Audiobook with subtitles | Part 1



Views:787|Rating:4.17|View Time:5:51:37Minutes|Likes:5|Dislikes:1
One of the greatest English tragic novels, TESS OF THE D’URBERVILLES (1891) is the story of a “pure woman” who is victimized both by conventional morality and its antithesis. Born near Dorchester, Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) set most of his stories in the region between Berkshire and Dorset in the fictional county of Wessex. He was a controversial writer whose work often showed the result of flouting the rigid Victorian moral code — his novel JUDE THE OBSCURE was (allegedly) burned by the Bishop of Wakefield for its shocking content. Hardy was an unflinching observer and in TESS has left us some unforgettable vignettes of rural life in late 19th-century England: the slow death of a flock of wounded pheasants, the monotony of field labour under an iron gray sky, and the itinerant farm worker’s seasonal round.

Take My Hand, Precious Lord – Thomas A. Dorsey with Marion Williams



Views:140388|Rating:4.82|View Time:7:31Minutes|Likes:915|Dislikes:35
Thomas A. Dorsey learned his religion from his Baptist minister father and piano from his music teacher mother in Villa Rica, Georgia, where he was born July 1, 1899. He came under the influence of local blues pianist when they moved to Atlanta in 1910.

He and his family relocated to Chicago during World War I where they joined the Pilgrim Baptist Church, and he studied at the Chicago College of Composition and Arranging and became an agent for Paramount Records.

He began his musical career known as Georgia Tom, playing barrelhouse piano in one of Al Capone’s Chicago speakeasies and leading Ma Rainey’s Jazz band. He hooked up with slide guitarist Hudson Tampa Red Whittaker with whom he recorded the best selling blues hit, “Tight Like That,” in 1928 and wrote more than 460 Rhythm and Blues and Jazz songs.

He was soon whipped into shape to do the Lords will. Discouraged by his own efforts to publish and sell his songs through the old method of peddled song sheets and dissatisfied with the treatment given composers of race music by the music publishing industry, Dorsey became the first independent publisher of black Gospel music with the establishment of the Dorsey House of music in Chicago in 1932.

He also founded and became the President of the National Convention of Gospel Choirs and Choruses. He wrote his classic and most famous song, “Precious Lord” in the grief following the death of his first wife in childbirth in 1932.

It since has been recorded by such diverse artists as Mahalia Jackson, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, and Elvis Presley, and was the favorite Gospel song of both Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who asked that it be sung at the rally he led the night before his assassination, and of President Lyndon B. Johnson who requested that it be sung at his funeral.

Almost equally well known is his “Peace in the Valley,” which he wrote for Mahalia Jackson in 1937. In October of 1979, he was the first black elected to the Nashville Songwriters International Hall of Fame.

In September 1981, his native Georgia honored him with election to the Georgia Music Hall of Fame; in March 1982, he was the first black elected to the Gospel Music Association’s Living Hall of Fame; in August 1982, the Thomas A. Dorsey Archives were opened at Fisk University where his collection joined those of W. C. Handy, George Gershwin, and the Jubilee Singers.

Summing up his life, he says all his work has been from God, for God, and for his people.

Moment Shawn Thomas’ widow meets his coff!n at the airport…

Heartbreaking moment a grieving widow meets her hero Army vet husband’s coff!n on the airport tarmac – leaving a plane full of passengers in tears.

Green Beret Shawn Thomas, 35, d!ed earlier this month after a vehicle accident while serving in Niger, Africa
Married father of four, of Woodward, Oklahoma, was based in North Carolina
His remains were brought back to Raleigh-Durham International Airport 
A passenger on the plane filmed the heartbreaking moment Thomas’ wife placed her hand on the flag-draped coffin 
Said the widow wanted her to share the video, which she posted Tuesday online.

A heartbreaking video shows the moment a widow met her Army veteran husband’s coff!n on the airport tarmac, leaving a plane full of passengers in tears.

Green Beret Shawn Thomas, 35, an Oklahoma native and father of four who was based in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, d!ed earlier this month after a vehicle accident while serving in Niger, Africa.

His flag-draped coffin was brought back to Raleigh-Durham International Airport and the fallen warrant officer’s remains will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. He had two Bronze Stars and four Good Conduct Medals, as well as other decorations for the time he served abroad, according to the Army Times.

A passenger on the aircraft recorded the moment Thomas’ wife, Tara, came up to her husband’s coffin on the tarmac – and later said the widow had told her to share the video so viewers would understand the sacrifices made by military families.

The footage shows soldiers respectfully taking Thomas’ coffin off of the airplane while the person recording sheds tears.

Tara, all dressed in black, can be seen through the rain-splattered window walking up to her husband’s remains and placing her hands on the American flag, lowering her forehead to the coffin.

More family members then gather around her, their sorrow apparent.

‘It was an honor to fly home with this PATRIOT!’ Lisa West Williams, who shared the video on Facebook, wrote. ‘God bless his wife and family. There was not a dry eye around me.’

The clip has now been viewed more than seven million times, with dozens of comments thanking Thomas for his service and presenting their condolences to his family. 

Williams told WNCT that Tara had thanked her for the footage and wanted it to be posted for others to see.

‘She wanted people to realize that this goes on every day,’ Williams said.

‘There are many men and women that come home in a casket and they’ve made the ultimate sacrifice for us.’

The passenger recalled hearing someone else on the aircraft saying, as Thomas’ coffin was brought out, ‘Oh, another angel is coming home.’

Thomas was part of a group of soldiers deployed to central Africa to work with Nigerian soldiers against terrorism and counter Boko Haram.

A spokesman told the Army Times he couldn’t give more details regarding the accident that took Thomas’ life due to an ongoing investigation.
He received a Meritorious Service Medal and Army Commendation Medal after his death, recognizing the work he had conducted in Niger.

An obituary for Thomas states that ‘under his big beard, tattoos and giant muscles there was a small town Oklahoma boy that was grounded by his faith, strong values, and family’.

The soldier is survived by his wife, their four children, his parents, as well as his brother and half-sister.
