About the song “Where’s the Line to See Jesus?”

About the song “Where’s the Line to See Jesus?” performed by Becky Kelley.

 Passing along an email sent to me by my mother:Jesus song

While at the mall a couple of years ago, my then four year old nephew, Spencer, saw kids lined up to see Santa Claus. Having been taught as a toddler that Christmas is the holiday that Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, he asked his mom, “where’s the line to see Jesus”? My sister mentioned this to my dad, who immediately became inspired and jotted words down to a song in just a few minutes. After putting music to the words, and doing a quick recording at home, he received a great response from friends. He sent the song off to Nashville without much response, except for a Christian song writer who suggested adding a bridge at the end of the first chorus. My dad then asked if I wanted to record the song to see what we could do with it. I listened to the song, made a few changes to the words to make it flow better, and we headed to S hock City Studios. It was at the studio where Chris, owner and producer, rewrote the 2nd verse and part of the chorus… With goosebumps and emotions high, we were all hopeful and felt like we had something special. The demo was recorded in just under 2 hours and sent off again to Nashville … Still no response. Then 2 weeks before Christmas last year, my cousins Greg and Robbie decided to do a video to see what we could accomplish on YouTube. The first day we had 3000 hits and it soared from there. We received e-mails, phone calls, Facebook messages from people all over asking for the music, CD‘s, iTunes, anything… We had nothin’. After a couple of meetings with Chris following the amazing response, we got serious. We headed back into the studio this past spring… This time with guitars, drums, bass, pianos, choirs… The real deal…. And here we are today. Getting iTunes set up, a website put together, and loving that thousands upon thousands of Christians have come together… Remembering the true meaning of Christmas. Out of the mouths of babes come profound truths that many adults can not understand. Hopefully Spencer’s observation will cause people all over to reflect on the love of Jesus, and that one day we will all stand in line to see Him. We are most thankful to our Heavenly Father to have this chance to share our music with you. Merry Christmas everyone.


Recently I read the Pet’s Ten Commandments at, and was touched by the list.

I think a lot of “passive” animal cruelty (not giving pets the love and attention they crave, which can result in behavior problems) could be avoided if all pet owners understood that they’re not “just cats.”

Cats and dogs (and other pets) are sentient beings with as rich an emotional life as you or I, and they need our love, care and approval just as they need food, water and air.

Here are the Pet’s Ten Commandments:

  1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Please understand that any separation from you is likely to be painful. 


  2. Give me time to understand what you want of me. 


  3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being. 


  4. Don’t be angry with me for long and don’t lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainments, but I have only you. 


  5. Talk to me. Even if I don’t understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me. 


  6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it. 


  7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite or scratch you. 


  8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I’m not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak. 


  9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old. 


  10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can’t bear to watch. Don’t make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.
