Donelson Christian Academy Christmas Program

Monday night, sweet Wifey and I went to Nashville to listen to our grandson, Nicholas, perform in the middle school choir at Donelson Christian Academy. We were joined by my daughter, Nicholas' mom, Amanda; my sister, Nancye; and my niece, Laura, with her husband, Bill.

We enjoyed performances by the Legacy Choir, the Concert Choir, the Middle School Choir, and a variety of performances by selected soloists.

I have to say that the whole thing was most enjoyable and was professionally performed.

It was hard for me to believe that just six months ago the whole place had been destroyed and was under water from the severe Nashville floods last May. In just six short months the entire school had been restored to original and functional condition through the efforts and donations of parents, teachers, students, and the community in general. Sweet Wifey and I were joking that they likely received not a cent of Obama's "stimulus" money nor would they have wanted any.

It was nice to sit back and enjoy the singing in a place where God is glorified and prayer is encouraged rather than having to worry about offending some liberal and/or atheist. We are thankful Nicholas has such a nice place to get a quality education and learn the morals and decency that will lead him through the rest of his life.


  1. That sounded really great. The performance was so professional, almost like a Broadway show. What talent.

    Your are right about being able to worship God, give him the glory and worship him without worry of the ACLU or some lefty nut.

    Right Truth

  2. It is sad this nation is so fixated on the monetary aspects of Christmas. The real reason for our celebrating is Jesus. Your video just goes to prove that if it were not for the praying and singing Christians in this nation we might not still be here.

    Something has to happen soon to revive the morals of this nation or else God will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.

    God bless all the children in America and I pray they can all have a moral upbringing.

  3. If this happened in New Orleans they would still be lined up in front of the FEMA office with "Hep ME " signs...

    Nice pix your daughter looks like Trixie and grandson like you.

    Da de da,
