Merry Christmas to one and all
Only a week to go and it will be Christmas Eve. I can't wait.
The Christmas Eve service this year is at 9pm and the Christmas Day one is at 9am,
so that is easy to remember.
Then it's all on at our place.
The family will all gather here for Christmas Dinner,
a traditional roast meal this year as that is what my GKB has requested
and what my little mother prefers.
Our Christmas tree is finally up and decorated - I thought
for while we wouldn't get it up,
life has been so busy.
We had the youth group breakup
and barbecue last night,
cold weather but the kids got out
and played mini golf while they waited for the
food and they were happy.
Above is a picture of the tree in the church that
was officially decorated by the youth but in
reality was done by the leaders with
one or 2 of the kids helping.
We think it turned out pretty good.
These two pictures are of the
Christmas tree the Sunday School
kiddies decorated, and the crib
underneath that one of the older ladies
in the church made for them.
They had a lot of fun doing this,
did I tell you we have mainly boys in
our Sunday School.
Only 2 (brave) girls.
Tomorrow they put on their tableau during
the morning service
and have their breakup and prize giving.
It's going to be a lot of fun,
we haven't had a real practice yet.
Both the trees were decorated with love
and to share with the community.
The Christmas tree in the foyer at my work place.
A lovely way to be greeted as you come in the door
and the residents like to sit out there and see it too.
I thought it was very pretty.
A final word - a reminder of the reason for the season.
"For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it." John 3: 16 &17
I wish you all a merry and blessed
Christmas and a very prosperous 2012
