WORD FOR TODAY IS

MUSIC



This is the Living Christmas Tree at the Eastview Christian Church in Illinois. When we lived in Illinois we used to do this every Christmas. Our performaces were highly attended and boy did we have a great time doing these. I am in the third row on the left hand side. the 4th one in!! This picture was taken in 1991 which does not seem that long ago but I guess that it was!! We would climb up through stairs and hid in our spots until the right time in the music. It would be all dark. Then when the right time came we would all pop up and start singing!! There was a drama that also went along with the living tree which some of us also were in too. WHAT FUN!! I miss those great times...I miss the singing which I love to do.

This is a picture of me then...which I see I have changed a lot since then...gained weight and had my teeth fixed and well of course gained a lot of years too!!

I just thought this might be fun to see what I used to do when I lived in Illinois!!

I never heard of those trees. I couldn't believe it when I looked at it. I would never be able to be the one on the top tier! But it's totally gorgeous.

I think I have never seen a living Christmas tree !

BTW I take the Cyber Cruise to London today ! More exactly to Croydon. I love this place it's much better then Central London once you have seen all the tourist stuff and museums ! I had 10 years for that, lol ! I also had to do this Onion meme and feel "peeled" !
