Too busy today to write much. December is such a race to the finish!!! Yesterday we had morning church, came home for about an hour to eat tacos, then 3 of us went to sing in a local performance of Handel's Messiah. It was a truly wonderful hour, with excellent soloists, and I loved singing those rousing choruses. The whole auditorium sang with us on the "Hallelujah Chorus," and I looked upward as we sang the Lord's name, wanting His spirit to be there, to uplift everyone as we anticipate not just a remembrance of His birth, but celebrate His living in our souls now -- making us spiritually alive and happy to be His children.
I wrote about our Chrismon ornaments earlier? The choir sang, we all sang carols, and the children decorated the tree some more.
