I am on the Decor and Environment group at the church. What is that you ask? Basically it is getting the church or room ready for an event. We come in to decorate and set up and take down. For December that meant we were to decorate the entry, halls and class rooms for Christmas. The head designer does a great job and I am honored to come along side and just help, along with other women.
I think this is the link so you can hear him!
Benjamin had his Christmas concert at the University of North Texas on Tuesday night. He is the only boy in this Jr High Orchestra. He is also only in 5th grade. He did an awesome job. He is in the back corner to the left next to a teacher.
Stress relief was given in this over-scheduled week by going to keep my grandsons. We made cinnamon ornaments for the tree. I had also made 2 dozens for Ben's class at school, which I helped decorate his room with on Wednesday, before keeping my grands. Just playing with my grandsons makes all the tiredness go away, and even some of the body aches.
In between all of this Benjamin and I found our Christmas tree. It is the smallest we have ever had, but we are enjoying it. This meant time to pull out all the decorations. Each year this a trip down memory lane for me. This usually means laughter and some tears. It always means thankfulness to a God who hasn't forsaken us. All the old, because new again, as I decorate our house.
I finished up the week with another visit to the second set of three grandsons. Of course, we needed to make something also, so I grabbed the paint. We took their pumpkin and made it into a snowman. David was so excited he hugged the pumpkin!
The week came to an end. Memories were made, obligations completed, even lunch with a friend and the calendar turns another page in December. This week is slower. I am going to cherish the time to set at the feet of my Savior. May you also have time to spend hearing His voice and worshiping the one who the season is all about.
