CHRIST-MAS!

MERRY CHRIST-MAS my dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ!

short-merry-christmas-wallpapersI hope you are all having a lovely holiday today, I am just simply trying to enjoy it as best I can and look back on times gone by, it is quite amazing how much time can change things isn’t it?

Each time I start to write one of these blog posts I try to shoot for about 500 words or more because I just feel that is what they should be, not too long, not too short but something good and soul providing, encouraging, uplifting, inspiring (I hope) and good food for your spirit!

Don’t forget what the season is truly about, it’s about these simple attributes below:

  • Christ
  • Giving
  • Love
  • Peace
  • Joy
  • Happy-ness
  • Kindness
  • Caring
  • Sharing
  • Togetherness

If we ever forget that we will lose all sight of the holiday’s, and I’m afraid there are too many people that have already forgotten, as I said in my last actual radio show, CHRIST-MAS isn’t really ALL about gifts, fancy dishes, a lot of food, super savings at the grocery store, egg nog, it’s not about how much ‘stuff’ you get at all. CHRIST-MAS first and foremost has always been about CHRIST.

Now if you’ve been paying attention you’ll notice that I have been spelling Christmas like the following – “CHRIST-MAS” why is that? Simply because if you look at that last word “MAS” in Spanish, it is then translated to “MORE” am I right? I don’t know much Spanish, but I know that  much to tell you, yes I am right! So looking at it with that mindset, Christmas is really one or as matter of fact THE biggest season of the year and it is possibly the one day out of the entire year that CHRIST is recognized MAS than he is any other day of the year!

When CHRIST-MAS is celebrated in that context.

Which I believe for many, many, many many, many years now it always has been, people have always celebrated CHRIST-MAS to honor and glorify – CHRIST!

Now don’t get me wrong, I do not doubt for one minute that there aren’t people who are caught up in all the “stuff” people that ‘worship’ Santa, the elves, the tree, blah blah blah.

I’m pretty sure there are some and we know for a fact that more and more each year our beloved Christmas becomes this commercialization about business making more and more money while people kill each other to save less, it is increasing at a rapid speed, people going crazy about the ‘stuff’ rather than the true meaning.

And we cannot deny that the majority of all the world recognizes Christmas as CHRIST’S birthday and he IS glorified by, he IS, it’s just a ‘fact’ even sinners have to recognize him that day because when Christmas is celebrated the way it always has been, and the one that will  really comes out being glorified is GOD and while I believe the spirit of Christ-mas lives inside each and every single one of us all throughout the year, because I believe it is just the TRUE love of Christ.

It just for some reason takes the actual season of CHRIST-MAS to activate it, then it begins to work outside of us, so what do you say my friends? Are you going to embrace  CHRISTMAS spirit this season? And if you do, why not riding it all throughout  the New Year as well?

And possibly throughout the rest of your life? (Just a wild thought)

I know many have their criticism of Christmas but I will continue to celebrate it, as my favorite parts are the lights and Christ said he is the LIGHT of the world, so why let your house be all dark, gloomy and Scrooge-y this Christmas?

Just to let you all know, again, after today I will be taking a 5 day break from the social world and my phone/internet/laptop and most all electronic devices other than TV to watch some shows and movies with my family.

Celebrate Christ more this Christ-mas!

God bless you all!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

A Christmas Eve Catastrophe

Dec
24

And so it began nearly two years ago, the beginning of another Christmas Eve

112

I’m pretty sure I started that morning with some type of exercise, maybe even a walk as you know temperatures are fairly warm in East Texas even around this time of year,  when I got home there were cookies to be made, chicken salad to be prepared and pecan pies to be made as well!It all started like any other day, quiet, peaceful, calm and mystical as you could just feel the Christmas magic all around you in the air. The Christmas tree was glowing from it’s many strands of lights and beads that were carefully wrapped around it and presents were neatly stacked at the bottom, things were Christmas-y indeed.

I began making the pecan pies, I believe this was the first year I had ever attempted to make one on my own (and I’m not much of a baker to begin with) nevertheless I embarked on this mystical baking journey and set out to make two homemade pecan pies from our very own pecans right here on our own Texas abode!

IMG_2622However I’m pretty sure that they flopped the first time, but we intended on eating them anyways because we can never let anything go to waste (that is considering we have  done without things in the past) so we went on to place them aside to cool and supposedly “set up” (which they would have done, I just hadn’t baked them properly).

Time For A Present!

Usually we wait until we get back from looking at Christmas lights to do this but somehow this time was different and it was decided that we could open “one” present on Christmas Eve that is usual tradition in our home and I’m sure many other homes around the world as well, now, this was the night that I happened to obtained my very first condenser microphone ever for my radio show!

I surely have put it to good use over the past two years, I think, and I believe that I have gotten more used to it and better even, having bought two real XLR cable condenser microphones this year I mainly use them now, but I still from time to time use my very first USB as it’s just easier to set up for short projects and it can compete pretty well with my new professional equipment.

And of course it will always be my first microphone that I will always cherish and keep with me, who knows, maybe one day It’ll mean something to someone else besides me you think? You never can know I suppose…

Well Enough of my rambling, onto the rest of our evening.

The Return Home:

After gazing at Christmas lights for the past couple of hours (which happens to be a family tradition of ours) we then decided to make our journey home, what we didn’t know is the surprise that would be awaiting us when we got there.

It just so happens my friends that I forgot to mention that not too long before the holidays my grandparents had picked up this rescue dog on their way back from a funeral one day in North of Arkansas I believe, a black German Shepherd (at the time named Titan but we renamed him Samson) he had been mistreated by some old lady that kept him in a cage and starved him when he was a puppy.

Something we had forgotten that you’ll understand here in just a moment, a police officer had took him in and posted an ad that he needed to get him to a good family and sure enough my grandparents just all of a sudden decided to go pick him up that day.

It was quite frustrating for me too because I had worked all day on cleaning the house and all of a sudden they barge through the door and I get pounced on by a dog licking my face like a wild maniac, oh well, anyways…

Onto Christmas Eve…

It just so happens that we had put him in a cage not thinking much of it, it was a very big cage and we knew we would be home soon enough, we really didn’t think it could be that bad but sure enough when we returned home, well…

Let’s just say it wasn’t too pretty, he ripped out of that sucker…

We had gotten my grandpa donuts for Christmas that year and that is what he opened on Christmas eve, the dog just so happened to get into some of them, he also opened a few other presents as well that we had wrapped for him, (naughty little booger) he also managed to get into the mini beef franks we had planned for pigs in a blanket on Christmas day or in this case it would of been (Cows in a blanket) and he of course got into those beautiful pecan pies I had made.

But get this, he didn’t just eat one whole pie, he had to eat half of each one! We were all very frustrated indeed, but we knew it probably wasn’t such a good idea to put him in a cage given his past experiences, we just didn’t want him getting into the food (which he happened to do anyways)

IMG_2623

Needless to say that was the last day he spent in the house, he made a pretty good house dog for awhile and even is house trained, he would go to the door when he needed to go out and I don’t believe he ever gave us any trouble there unless of course we didn’t pay attention to his plea to go out, he’s got short hair so his shedding wasn’t too bad but it was still a bit of a task to maintain.

However after we came home to that “Christmas Eve Catastrophe” we decided it was best he stay out side from then on, who could blame us, and who could really blame the dog? It was best for everyone I believe and he still loves us just as much as he did before.

With that said, I hope you all have  a very Merry Christmas eve and an even better Christmas day! My family went out Christmas light looking early this year, yesterday so I suppose we will be staying in tonight enjoying the magic that is Christmas Eve.

Until next time…

Change…

Nov
26

Good tidings to you my dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ!
Change

Ahhh… Yes, time to break out the old “CHANGE” Image again!

Well, today I want to talk to you about some of the new directions I plan on taking my radio show, this website and whatever else I can think of to fill the gaps in this post. Let’s start with the new direction for “Tune Radio”

As you can see (If you even checked, you little lazies!) I have updated the “Tune Radio Page” I have also made a separate youtube channel completely dedicated to Tune Radio, I may just be sharing shows through that account for quite awhile like I already have been doing, because my digital radio dj/broadcaster will not work for me anymore like it once did and I now have no other way to share my radio show but youtube.

So if you haven’t already  – go SUBSCRIBE!

Next let’s discuss…

The Website:

From now on I will be dedication a lot more time to working on building up my website. Now, that doesn’t mean that I won’t be posting on other social media pages anymore, it just means I will be using social media pages to direct more traffic to my website because I’ve had this blasted thing for two years now and there are still some people that aren’t even aware I have one!

How do you like the new look by the way? I myself LOVE it but hey, I’m “supposed” to LOVE it! I made the darn thing! I bet some of you are reading and are thinking right now, “Well, this kid’s on a sugar high” Nah! I’m just excited about all the things I have “planned”.

QUICK! Think! Why did I put quotation marks around “planned” like that? Because I am one that believes everything always goes according to plan! Even if it doesn’t go according to MY plan, then I KNOW it had to of gone according to GOD’S plan because I always try to be in his perfect will.

BLOG POSTS:

I am going to try to write and share more blog posts, It’s one thing I love doing; however with writing and planning shows for “The Nathan Tune Show” that takes up a lot of time as it is and I have to manage things better and sacrifice some things for the good of something else.

With that being said blog posts will most likely continue as they have been, but who knows, I’ll try to write something short every chance I get!

AUDIO DRAMA’S:

This Christmas I will be premiering my very first ever audio drama!

Titled: “A SAVIOR fOR cHRISTMAS”

Preview Below:

I have ALWAYS – LOVED audio drama’s! It makes me so happy to announce this story I created on my own and having acted all the voices as well! I CANNOT wait to share it with you!

Remember, this premieres December 23rd of this year!

It will be available to listen to on youtube for FREE – but if you wish to support this drama and others like it in the near future, you can do so by CLICKING HERE.

Thank you for whatever you can give! As someone once said…

Even the smallest pebble, can make a ripple; In the pool of life.

Well, that is about it for now! OH! I almost forgot – (ALMOST)

I will be taking a one week break from “The Nathan Tune Show” meaning I will come back on December 9th 2014.

Thank you for all who read and until next time…
