Our choir did our Christmas Cantata on Christmas Eve. We did as good as I expected, although I did not have expectations that were too high. We had many obstacles this year in choir.
It was a lovely service with over 100 in attendance, and one young man received Christ as his Saviour. He just came up to the Preacher after the service and said "I need to receive the Gift!"
We had a nice meal later, just the four of us, and of course, THE PRESENTS! No matter how much you teach a seven-year-old that its not just about the presents, its still a BIG DEAL to the little ones.
On Christmas Day we went over to Mother's for dinner. We had a traditional American Christmas dinner with all the trimmings except for cranberry sauce. We don't like cranberry sauce. The kids sang for us and Eileen played her violin. Then more PRESENTS. We then watched all our Christmas videos.
All in all, it was a great day, and the Lord knows why.(Thank you God for the answer to prayer)
I am so glad I serve a powerful, great God! If my God was as mediocre as people make Him out to be, I'd just give up. But I don't have a wimpy God, praise His Name!
