"Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know these shoes would make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight."
Chorus - The Christmas Shoes

Meck Notes: Open the show with my close friend - BIG JIM Kearce.
Big Jim was very touched by the Paul Finebaum Interv. [ 12/19/06.]
'I've been hearing Paul for sometime. Paul is very clever .. and tight when he needed to be.'

'Never suspected there was the other side you showed us [in the interview.] '
' He's talented and very bright. The other side .. very warm and compassionate.
He has great love and respect for his parents. '

'That's why I was fond of Elvis. His love and respect for his parents.
Paul has that same soft side. A big reason for Paul's success is the discipline
and the love that came from his mother and father.' - Big Jim Kearce

Thoughts on Eddie Carswell and The Christmas Shoes.

'Mr. Carswell is a phenominal writer. '
'His song Christmas Shoes talks about people who are hurting .. reaching out ..
and the joy of giving.' - Jim Kearce

This amazing song reminds us of a man who was so wrapped up in chasing the American dream - money. And how a little boy taught him about lasting fortune.
The man is standing in line on Christmas Eve - last minute shopping.
Also standing in line, is a little boy, buying some shoes for his dying Mama.
He gets to the cashier and doesn't have enough money for his Mama's shoes.
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size.

The Christmas Shoes

It was almost Christmas time, there I stood in another line
Tryin' to buy that last gift or two, not really in the Christmas mood
Standing right in front of me was a little boy waiting anxiously
Pacing 'round like little boys do
And in his hands he held a pair of shoes

His clothes were worn and old, he was dirty from head to toe
And when it came his time to pay
I couldn't believe what I heard him say

Chorus:
Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know these shoes would make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight

He counted pennies for what seemed like years
Then the cashier said, "Son, there's not enough here"
He searched his pockets frantically
Then he turned and he looked at me
He said Mama made Christmas good at our house
Though most years she just did without
Tell me Sir, what am I going to do,
Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes

So I laid the money down, I just had to help him out
I'll never forget the look on his face when he said
Mama's gonna look so great

Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know these shoes would make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight

Bridge:
I knew I'd caught a glimpse of heaven's love
As he thanked me and ran out
I knew that God had sent that little boy
To remind me just what Christmas is all about

Repeat Chorus

T I M E spells L O V E
Written by Eddie Carswell and Michael O'Brien
Father's Day, Mother's Day, EVERY Day...

Listen @ www.TheMeck.com

T I M E spells L O V E

Throw me the ball Daddy
I've been waiting all day
I'm so glad you're home and we got some time
So Let's go out and play
Just me and you
It's my favorite thing to do
Daddy I'm tellin' the truth

Chorus
T I M E time
Spells L O V E love
And Love is the one thing
This world needs more of
The choice is up to you
So what will you do
With your T I M E Time
and your L O V E love

I'll never forget you Daddy
You taught me the game so well
It's taken me places I never dreamed
So many stories to tell
How the time has come and gone
And now I have a son of my own
And I'm making sure your memory lives on

Bridge
I've heard it said a time or two
This game of life can take from you
But I found out love isn't really love
Till you give it away
