Sunday, Sunday, Sunday
It’s been a busy weekend for us. Yesterday, we prepped most of the morning for our annual Christmas Cookie Swap. We had a great time. One of the things that we did was play Madlibs. That’s always entertaining. We exchanged Christmas cookies and had a fun time of fellowship.
Last week our church bought us a new laptop and I spent most of Saturday evening making sure everything would work. I had a couple issues getting PowerPoint to work with EasyWorship, but after a few tweaks, I had everything running smoothly. Everything worked great this morning.
We had a good service this morning. One of the men came over after church to help me move our hope chest so we could start putting up the tree. We ran into a snag however. The tree went up flawlessly although it is starting to show its age. We bought it before James was born. Once the tree was up, it’s my job to put on the lights – hmmm! I have three strings of a 100 lights that are colored blue, purple, and green. (Blue represents the night that Jesus was born, purple represents Jesus’ royalty, and green represents the everlasting life we have from Jesus’ birth.) One half of one of those strings isn’t working and as I tried to fix it, less and lights worked. I think what I am going to do is pick up a basic string of white lights and replace the string, I should have plenty of lights to make it work.
The rest of the afternoon has been watching football. First we watched the Lake Effect Bowl in Buffalo and now we are watching the Eagles play the Rams. All in all it’s been a good day. We had a good worship service this morning and I preached “Come Thou Long Expected Jesus” about the second coming of Jesus. Pam will be preaching next week. Her message will be “While Shepherds Watched their Flocks.”
On Friday night, we were at Emmaus Road and it was just Pam and I leading worship. We also spent this week getting ready for some of our upcoming events – the Blue Christmas Service and Christmas Eve.
I really can’t think of much more. Have a great week!
