Greetings my friends. It’s the start of a brand-new season, and a brand-new month, and a brand-new weekend of blogging.
It’s Wednesday December 01ST 2021. I am back from vacation, and I am back to writing and publishing 4 blog posts each weekend (from Thursday to Monday). But all this month – starting today – I’ll be presenting special blog posts every Wednesday as well, so that’s 5 blog posts each weekend in December !
#TravelThursday continues tomorrow with the kickoff of my 7-part series on my recent 18-day / 2,822-mile / 5-state road-trip between South Florida and North Texas.
But right now it’s a special hit music chart to celebrate the past 250 weeks of my hit music chart. It’s my #Top25Of250 !
250 weekly hit music charts and 235 positive and encouraging hits have created this cumulative chart of my Top 25 hits of this current (K-LOVE) era of my chart ever since it was resurrected on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017 here in the U.S.A. after a 7-year hiatus. It’s based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay.

MATTHEW WEST – What can I say about him ? He’s my # 1 artist over the past 250 weeks – statistically and genuinely. When someone asks me who my favorite singer is – the answer is Matthew West. Most of the time I get a quick response of “Who ?”. Like nearly every other artist on my Top 25 – I had never heard of Matthew West until 250 weeks ago. 5 out of 6 of his radio hits since 2017 are on my Top 25 – including his current hit “What If”. They all hit # 1 or # 2, and they all spent at least 20 weeks on my chart. The lone exception was his 2ND hit during the Summer of 2018 – “All In”. (It reached # 2, but it only managed a meager 11 weeks on my chart.)
250 WEEKS – What a great chart of music that praises and worships our God, and gives Him all of the glory. Each song on here makes me smile – and sing along. Some have a beat that make me want to dance for Jesus. They remind me of a distinct 20-to-30-week time-period over the past 250 weeks as I moved closer to God aboard this (now) 15-year fantastic journey that He has blessed me with.
If you’re not familiar with one or any of these songs then use Google, Bing, Amazon, Apple, or YouTube to check them out. Enjoy the music, but especially listen to the words. The words of these songs represent God’s Word. Any one of these songs can change a life forever.
He has given me a new song to sing – a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what He has done, and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD. (Psalm 40:3 NLT)
This is the start of a 5-blog-post-weekend. I’ll conclude this weekend this upcoming Monday December 06TH with the return of “My Top 10 Hits – Week 251”. Thank You for allowing me to share God’s Good News through His music.
