We served communion this morning, and before the service, Leah helped with preparing the cups (Thanks, Leah, and do you remember how it was hard to get the juice out? Well, I guess I had a “Sarah” moment. When I cleaned it out when I got home, I saw the straw was not in the bottle–that’s why we had a harder time!).
We have some special song books designed for nursing home, so they have a larger print then normal. We generally sing through the hymnbook in order, since it’s not a thick book, it takes us a few months to go through it completely. But, today, we opted for some Christmas songs.
Daddy and “B” time–Bethany has acid reflux, so she does best being held upright and often walking helps too.
After singing several hymns, we move on to prayer time. Today, John leads it.
A special music, by most of the young people in our church.
Christopher preached, and then we had communion.
Leah sits next to Mrs. B. (a widow, her husband used to live at the nursing home) every Sunday, which just delights Mrs. B’s heart.
We will greatly miss the R. family, who will be moving to another city this week. We have been so blessed by them this past year–I’ll never forget receiving an e-mail from them, inquiring about church, last December. They came for the first time on Christmas Day, and we’ve been enjoying them ever since. We’ll miss ya’ll. They were also the family who set up Live Stream for our nursing home friends on wedding day.
Sarah for the rest

but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down” (Psalms 146:9).
