We had our Christmas Program at Church Saturday Night. The youth and children worked very hard and long hours. Ms. Danielle, the director, sacrificed a lot of time to make this a success. The theme this year was CHRISTMAS IN EGYPT. It was about Jesus first birthday which was, most likely, spent in Egypt. When the Lord warmed Joseph to take the Child and flee to Egypt was just a fulfilling of the Scripture.
Have you ever thought that Jesus may have been in Egypt on His first birthday? I don't guess I ever really thought about it. But the program was beautiful. The costumes were Egyptian clothes. I mean royal clothes.
I wish I had a picture to put on here so you could see. But we had misplaced our camera. Shh! Don't tell anyone~ but it was in my purse the whole time. I don't know how that could have happened but it was way down in the bottom. I was pretty aggravated with myself when I found it. All during the program it was right on the seat with me. Just have too much on my mind or getting old ~ maybe a little of both.
Just got the rest of my Christmas shopping done. Now I need to start wrapping. Most of the gifts are home made. A few are not. We are trying to place the most emphasis on Jesus ~ the real meaning of Christmas.
We want to have a gift for Him for Christmas in the form of a special offering.
Today was my first day in the stores. I have no desire to go again. People go nuts. I wondered with all the packages and long lines ~ how many are thinking about the real meaning. Very few, no doubt!
Guess I have rested long enough. Have a good and blessed week.
