Favorite Christmas Memory- Greg Sullivan

Favorite Christmas Memory

Favorite Christmas Memory??  I am so thankful that I have so many.  From back when all my grandparents were with us to the last Christmas that I had with my Dad, they are all special intheir own ways. One year at Christmas, our son Brett began to understand Christmas. He started getting excited about family gatherings, opening of gifts to Santa, and other great things about the holidays.  Brett is autistic, and when he was little, he didn’t understand Christmas or even get excited.  We have always kept Jesus first in our home, and we taught our daughter, Kaleigh, the true meaning of Christmas while allowing the magic of Christmas to be enjoyed. Kaleigh has loved Christmas from before she understood its meaning and loves it even more now.  Even though she is 28, she is still a kid at heart, and so am I.

Early in Brett’s life she would help him open his gifts, but he would only pick up one toy or a book and that would be all he focused on.  At age four he finally realized that those presents were for him. He wanted to open them and began playing with all his gifts.  It was such a blessing to see him enjoy that part of his childhood. He turned 27 this year, and every year when December rolls around he begins telling us how many days there are until Christmas.

Being of parent of an autistic child is challenging but veryrewarding. I stop and look at every victory.  There are no small victories, they are all huge. God has truly blessed our family. Lisa and I have been married 33 years, and we have two awesome children.  We have gone through a lot as a family, and God has been there with us every step of the way. Each Christmas seems to have its own special moments, and as I get older, I try my very best to soak every moment in. I am thankful each day for what God did for us when He sent His Son to Earth to become a man and to die on a rugged cross for all mankind.  We have a Savior and His name is Jesus. I pray that if you have not that you will find the true meaning of Christmas and begin walking daily with Jesus.

My favorite thing about Creekside was seeing a Family of Artists come together in one mind and one accord to do their very best to encourage one another and lift up our Lord and Savior. It was all about Jesus!! Amen!!

Beyond the Song: Greg Sullivan talks about his new album, “Have I Got Good News For You”

Jantina de Haan went Beyond the Song to ask gospel artist Greg Sullivan about the songs off of his album, “Have I Got Good News For You.”

Sullivan says he loves the song, “Just Because.”

“Because I take comfort in the fact that my loved ones are over there cheering me on and they are not really gone, just out of sight for a while,” says Sullivan. “One day I will join them ‘Just Beyond,'”

Sullivan confesses, “But my favorite on the album is ‘Another Child is Coming Home.’

“Seeing God deliver my daughter from a six-year drug addiction that almost took her life, makes the song very special to me. I got to feel what the Prodigal Father felt when his son came home when my daughter called last May and asked, “Daddy can I come home?’ One of the greatest days of my life. Now I am able to give people hope because what God did for my family!”

Christmas Wacky Wednesday from SGNScoops

Written by Staff on December 12, 2018 – 11:05 am -

Wacky Wednesday titleIt’s Christmastime here on SGNScoops and we have a brand new Christmas edition of Wacky Wednesday just for you. This time, our question was: What is your favorite Christmas song and why? Let’s shake our Gospel music snowglobe and see what answers the artists have for us.

Thanks again to our special Social Media girl, Jantina de Haan, for securing these responses for us. We hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas!

 

Christmas 2017Mark Byrd: “Mary Did You Know.” I love the way this song has such a sweet flow but tells a story of a mighty King and Savior.

 

Eric Bennett: “Hope Has Hands” © Phill Cross; I love the way he describes baby Jesus. Hope has Hands, Freedom has Feet; Truth will stand, The Word will speak. The Holy and Lovely will finally embrace. For Love has a Heartbeat and Grace has a Face…”

Triumphant Christmas

Adam Crabb: “O Holy Night,” because it talks about the birth of our Savior and to me, this song is the true spirit of Christmas.

Kingdom Heirs ChristmasJaquita Lindsey: “Do You Hear What I Hear.” I remember trying to learn it on the piano, which I never learned to play the piano 🙂 I don’t have a particular reason for liking it. Just because.

Greg Sullivan: “There’s a New Kid In Town.” I like this song because not many people in Bethlehem knew that Jesus had been born and it focuses on how God became man in form of a child. This child would be the Savior of the world.

Randa Jordan: “White Christmas.” I loved the movie as a little girl, loved Bing Crosby, and it stayed with me all these years. It brings to me the happiest of memories.

Arthur Rice: “I’ll Be Home For Christmas.” The song came out in 1943 during WW2 and it was written from a soldier’s perspective of wanting to be home

Gaither Christmas Homecoming 2016

with their families for Christmas, even though the last line reveals it wouldn’t be a reality.
The song always reminds me of the reality that so many of our men and women won’t be home for Christmas. And how appreciative we should be for the sacrifice of them and their families, and we pray for their safe and speedy

return home.

Mark Bishop: Wow.. that’s a tough one. It’s hard to narrow it down to one song. For the simplicity of the beautiful message and the melody, it’s hard to beat “Silent Night.” It exemplifies what we should be focusing on at Christmas time, over shopping and gifts. It always makes me a little melancholy, too. Likewise, with Jubilee Christmas 2018. Greater Vision and Legacy Five“Oh Holy Night.” My sleeper choice would have to be “The Little Drummer Boy.” I love the story that it tells and that we don’t need to bring great gifts to Jesus like the three wise men, we only need to give Him the talents that He gave us. But the greatest Christmas gift of all is to give back to God what He gave us, to begin with.

Matt Fouch: I have a funny one…’You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” I love the original cut on this song and it fits the bass range just perfectly. People always smile when they hear you sing it, It’s a lot of fun.

Southern Gospel Sweetheart Autumn Nelon Clark

Autumn Clark of the Nelons

Autumn Clark: “The Christmas song.” Because it is so beautiful and the story it tells.

Scott Peek (DJ of KNMG Radio): “We Are The Reason.” The message can be no clearer. He came to earth as a baby for us. All 33 years of His life were about us His willingness to die on the cross was about us. And it all started that first Christmas morning…”WE ARE THE REASON!”

Harley Madden: “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” I think maybe my favorite song for Christmas. And the reason I say that is, back in 1985 my sister passed, and I miss her everyday. But now I think about it, she made my mom a promise for Christmas that year. And that was: She would be home for Christmas. Even though we may not have got our wish for her to be at her earthly home for Christmas, she was made new in her Heavenly home. Sitting at the feet of Jesus. I can’t wait to get to Heaven, to be able to see her again and give her a big hug.

Merry Christmas from SGNScoops
