The weekend is in full swing, and it is a delight to see the Lord’s blessings. Yesterday went quickly, with preparations for caroling and Walk Through Bethlehem.
Anna Marie helped me in the morning with cards for caroling treats. Joshua came with her and played with Aunt Mary (and watched Mommy and Aunt Sarah making cards) before taking his nap at our house. Another practice session ensued for the members of our group as they ran through their songs again.
Mid-afternoon, most went to set up, while Mom and Anna Marie baked poppy seed loaves for caroling treats. Set up went smoothly, and a little after 4, everyone headed home for Bible time and a light dinner.
We arrived at the church before 6:30. I stood in the back most of the time (with my camera :-)), and it was a delight to hear the full version of what Joseph, John, Anna, Jesse, and Mary have practiced the last few weeks. Their countenances’ truly reflect the Lord Jesus’ love. In between, they shared personal testimonies. There was a steady stream of new people entering the sanctuary, as they waited their turn to “walk through Bethlehem.” We’ll be taking our Walk Through Bethlehem tour tonight, before or after music, so I’ll share some pictures of that later, Lord willing.
Marveling in God’s Amazing Grace,
“And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.”
