A Merry & Blessed Christmas

Sometimes it's little things that make huge impacts in our lives. For Hugh Martin, it was one little song, written in 1943. Ralph Blane and he had created a merry jingle for Judy Garland to sing in "Meet Me In St. Louis." And fame inflamed over that one little song that is now a Christmas staple - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.

Little did Hugh know that years after writing that song, he would make one little decision that would forevermore grant him that merry Christmas of which he so happily sang - the decision to believe in Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

And now, at age 90, he has rewritten the song into one that points to Jesus as the reason for the season's merriment- Have Yourself a Blessed Little Christmas. It's a sweet song in which his piano talents are displayed as well as his ability to still write lyrics that bring merriment and blessing! See, ya just never know what little thing is going to make a huge impact in your life.... and others'!
