    For four years and eight months that I know david and still is in my life, the first time …………: The first time I saw him, the first time I said hello, the first time I gave him my hand, the first time that I heard sing live.
    And nows in Christmas events in Chile, I will see David singing Christmas songs live, for the first time.

    So happy for you Gladys. I’ve been fortunate to hear David sing at Motab and two Christmas Shows last year.
    …and two Pop concerts earlier.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers, Gladys. I am so happy that the Church is allowing David to sing in these concerts/shows.

    Thanks for arranging the Christmas Streaming Video Marlie.

    Way to go Gladys! Am sure it will be most wonderful and enchanting and most moving. After all it is David’s fave season :)

    I have never seen him sing Christmas songs live so I will live vicariously through you.

    Enjoyed listening to Motab and Ora Fallon Show today. Such great memories and a nice way to block out the Negative news in the world.

    Hope Missionaries listen to these songs and enjoy the Christmas Shows. So happy David will be singing in Christmas shows. Happy for those getting to hear him LIVE :)

    8 Months of Service :) Woo Hoo!

    Children’s choir to sing

    POCATELLO — The Idaho State Children’s Chorus will be celebrating Christmas by giving their time and talents to the community this Christmas. As we enter the Christmas holiday season, the chorus will be singing for residents of Quail Ridge Assisted Living at 1 p.m. and then at the Stephens Performing Arts Center in the Jensen Grand Concert Hall at 3 p.m., on Dec. 1 in conjunction with the Festival of Trees. The concert is being dubbed “A Christmas Concert for Kids.”

    In addition to the choral pieces, individual members who auditioned and earned the privilege to perform for the coveted, independent solo and ensemble spots will perform. Those students are Jessica and Aubrey Jones, singing J.J. Niles arrangement of “I Wonder As I Wander,” Dasani Belnap singing “Broken” by David Archuleta and in honor of those who lost their homes in the Charlotte fire. Also performing are Claire Baker singing “See The Joy,” Isabella Dougherty singing “Little One” and Anna LeFevre playing the piano solo, “The First Noel.” Nicole Harman will sing “Where Are You Christmas” from Dr. Seuss’ “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” and Abigail Ralphs will sing “I’m Getting’ Nuttin’ For Christmas.”

    The “Grand Holiday Concert” is free to the public and all are invited to attend!

    Yay, congrats David for winning the 24k Gold Award on ASAP.
    Hoping for Platinum Award next time. :)

    David is a 24K Gold Awardee! Congrats :)

    If David had been available, I bet he would have sent a video taped message accepting the award and thanking Ivory & ASAP for the recognition.

    And if he was here, a duet would have been arranged between him and Side A band -- the group which popularized Forevermore which they performed that afternoon after being conferred the Elite Platinum Circle Award.

    THAT would have been something!

    Beth @ FOD posted this story and I thought it is a good Christmas story to share. Am sure she won’t mind me sharing it here

    I’m looking at the website Not Always Right, people share stories of dealing with customers, came across this one, its a good story:

    (I am working the register over Christmas.)

    Me: “Find everything today?”

    Customer: “Yup.”

    (Note: she is silent through the transaction, which includes a gift card.)

    Me: “How much would you like on this?”

    Customer: “Oh, sorry. Can I have $150?”

    Me: “No problem.”

    Customer: *after paying* “Can you do me a favor?” *she hands me the gift card* “The next customer you see that you think could use this, could you give it to them?”

    Me: *stunned* “…Of course!”

    (After a minute another customer comes up, a visibly upset young woman.)

    Me: “Hi! How are you?”

    Customer #2: “I’m okay, thanks.”

    (Clearly she is not ok, but she is trying very hard to be pleasant. She is getting very basic items: milk, bread, eggs, etc. Nothing very festive.)
    Me: “So your total comes out to $0.00.”

    Customer: “What?”

    Me: “The person before you gave me a $150 gift card to use for the next person I thought could use it. You look like you’re having a rough day, so here are your groceries, and there’s about $130 left on this card.”

    (The customer just started crying. Once she could, she thanked me about 100 times. Made my whole Christmas season.)

    David enjoins us to share our blessings. Have you? :)

    Love the story. :)
    When we begin sharing an interesting thing happens, not only do we fill the other person but we are also filled at the same time.

    Missed a lot of posts here in TDC. Need to catch up. 😉
