Bing Crosby was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century. Bing was also a philanthropist who founded the professional golf hosted by Pebble Beach on the PGA Tour. This tournament began as a clam bake where Bing involved his friends to participate in a golf tournament with some of the best golfers in the world. Beginning in 1937 as the Bing Crosby Pro-Am, title this tournament has evolved into the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, Isaiah 55:9-10.
Yet, when you hear the rendition of White Christmas which is now 72 years old, Bing possessed a soothing voice that has touched countless souls. Geographically speaking, most Americans living in the south won’t have a white Christmas this year. Yet, as a child, it’s okay to dream and hope for snow. This is the storyline in the Christmas classic The Year Without a Santa Claus. In the end, the Heat Miser and Freeze Miser are forced by Mother Nature to allow snow on Christmas is a warm weather climate. While the odds may be against you, don’t be afraid to dream.
