So often I share photos and stories with you here on BCDC. This time I wish I had the ability to share audio with you so that you could be as impressed as I was on Sunday.
My sister, Ele, invited me to her church, United Methodist Church of National Park, to hear the Christmas cantata they were performing. Having grown up in this town, I always remember the church and how beautifully it was decorated for Christmas. It’s a wonderful old church, I forget the year it was built, but it’s small and welcoming. Many of the people there I know from town. They made me feel right at home.
None of that was really a surprise, I know what a wonderful congregation worships there.
What did surprise me was the cantata itself and one specific part. It was actually a children’s cantata called Christmas Star. All of the choir members wore big stars with their character’s name on it. There were choral parts and spoken parts. Ele’s big part (as far as I knew) was to be a kazu solo.
She had told me that at the last minute, she had been given a “little solo.” Well it was far from little and it was absolutely wonderful! Now, obviously, I’ve known her all my life. I’ve stood next to her singing Christmas carols I can’t remember how often. I had no idea she had such a beautiful voice! I was speechless. Good thing it turned out well because considering how small the church is, if my face had shown anything else she could have seen me! 😉 But seriously, she was perfect and I’m not saying that just because she’s my sister. I was (as always!) very proud of her! Thanks, Ele!!
I realized that with life in general being a little disjointed and making sure I made mention of my two-year anniversary here at BCDC, I forgot to mention that Saturday (yes, Snapsot Saturday) was my 700th post. I was having a hard time deciding how to make it interesting after the anniversary so I guess ignoring it let me off the hook! 😉 But I’m very excited and once again, thank you to all my readers!
I suppose I should save this for a post of its’ own, but I thought today I would share our Christmas card. I wanted to wait until most of the people who would be getting them in the mail got them before I spilled the beans (you should excuse the expression.)
So here you go…
It’s one of my favorites…but then I say that every year. 😉 The inside reads, “May the Light of this Joyous Season Surround You and all of those you Love. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year ” I love it and I wanted to share it with all of you.
Happy Monday! Oh, Boy do I have things to get done today!!
