You are all invited to my church's "Birthday Party for Jesus" on Sunday night December 21st at 6:00. Santa will be there participating in the games and having a jolly time as we all celebrate Jesus' birthday. We will play games such as, "Pin the Star on the Manger", Star Pinata, No Room in the Inn musical chairs, Wise man dress up and more. This year Santa isn't passing out gifts that particular night, instead we are filling Santa's bag with food and gifts for the needy. Each child will get a gift bag. Bring finger foods to go with the fabulous Birthday cake. And bring your friends.
Wow Christmas is just around the corner! Thanks to my old college friend Rachel I know that it is 16 days away. That means in 13 days I get a break from work! Yippi! There is alot to get done between now and then, not just at work but at church and at home. I guess the most immediate pressing need is to get my house cleaned up. I know that once it is done massive amounts of stress will be taken away. I need to wrap presents (the few that we are buying). Side note : I made two fantastic pillows last night! Sue helped me figure out how to use my sewing machine.........it was alot of fun!!! I know I know pillows are easy... but I had to start somewhere.
Brittany and her friend and Anthony are coming to spend the weekend. That should be loads of fun..........I know Brittany and her friend will be easy to occupy.....but Anthony.......hmmmm he never slows down!!! So basically I will get the house cleaned up and they will trash it :) fun times.
This weekend is the Christmas parade... Lisa hasn't really given any details so I don't know what we are doing with it. I know we will be decorating....I guess and the actual parade starts at 2 so we shall see.
Next weekend is the Christmas Cantata and Birthday Party for Jesus. I am still trying to work out all the details for that. I am having a hard time wrapping my head around what it will actually look like. I am sure it will be fun, I just want it to be fun for everyone.
And thennnn we are done! We don't have to be here for Christmas eve which I am really excited about. We will go spend time with my family tuesday and wednesday and thursday and friday will be with marty's family. We are still trying to decide what we are going to do for New years with Jeff and Jenny. Very exciting times!!!
I'm that girl who makes choices based on past experiences. My husband is a minister and a lot comes with that responsibility. We are learning together what it means to love like Christ and serve how He would have it. I have a tendency to talk too much, but I have been working on that. Everyday I am amazed at God's provision and guidance... if only I will take the time to recognize it.
