" The star of hope has to appear again, but it will only come when our hearts seek it, when there is a passion for it- a sighing, striving, and aching for the great mercy to come. Yes, the star will return, and then it will shine not just for a few, but it will quickly spread it's brilliance over the whole world. " - Blumhardt
:: The list of people I would like to thank is long. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this holiday sampler. My ELLT producers, and my friends who are producers/ musicians + the new faces.
I would also like to thank everyone who has bought a cassette or digital album this year. Not only did you support my dream, but you supported an artists' vision. To the fans, new and old, thank you for your support. This is my (our) gift to you. If you should choose to donate, it will be placed to continue our releases into the coming year.
Also thankful to anyone who has promoted or pushed ELLT in the last year. Whether that was the radio or a blog. Many of you have given me hope in times of turmoil. Your enthusiasm has provided a light in the darkness.
It has not been an easy start, and we have 2 months before our 1 year anniversary. I thank those who are always patient, even when it takes months to get cassettes to you. You have no idea how much that humbles me and melts my heart.
I want to sincerely and genuinely wish you all a warm holiday filled with love, friends, and family. May you always find joy and peace in each day. May you cherish those who are closest to you and never take them for granted.
If you should find yourself in darkness, know there is a candle burning in the window for you. Christmas is a time of waiting, of anticipation. May we all find our miracles in each other and rejoice. ::
