Our Christmas Cantata was last night and the choir and actors did a great job. It was set in civil war days and the theme was 'Christmas at Home'. The songs went right along with what Christmas is really about - the Baby born in the manager. We had a packed out house, which was a blessing in itself. Some who didn't go to church elsewhere and had never given their lives to Christ, heard the message last night.
A neighbor of ours, 90 years old, died on Saturday and the funeral is today. We are going to the visitation at the funeral home, but not going to the cemetery since Jim can't walk nor stand for long periods of time.
I still need to wrap what gifts I have, but since we aren't exchanging until the Sunday after Christmas, I have plenty of time. I can't explain it, but my heart just isn't in it this year. I have to pretend it is though when I am around my children and grandchildren.
KEEP CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS
