I started a post yesterday and then was having problems with loading pictures so just quit!! smile!! I don't suppose anyone else has ever done that before?? ha!!
I have been having some computer problems. Guess i need to call my great neighbor and see what is going wrong with my computer!!
I have had a great week. Tuesday night I went with my daughter to see our granddaughter be in her first choir concert!! She is in the 4th grade and being a choir is of course new to her. They also had their band too which I thought did a great job with only having 2 months of practice on instruments that they had never tried before. Like the leader said, these songs only require 6 notes!! smile!! They did a great job.
Our grandson, Garrett got into taking pictures. He really loved that camera!!
Madison had a great time singing!! I love to sing so it is nice to see one of my granddaughters that loves it also. Our older granddaughter, Katie also loves to sing. So nice to see these girls get something GOOD from this ole' grandmother!!
Madison is the one right behind the little blond boy in the front row..she is in the second row and is looking straight at the camera...
Then last night I again went with our daughter and kids to our Journey that our church puts on here in Savannah.
This is a very interactive depiction of the First Christmas when Jesus came as a baby!! You start out by receiving papers with your name on them. I was Deborah and I was from Judea. My husband and I sold fish and have two daughters that we love very much!! Each person gets a Jewish name and telling them what they do and who they are. We all get a half shekel so that we can pay our tribute to get into Bethlehem. Everyone is put into tribes. Romans guards are mean and try to make you feel horrible through the whole experience. They will stop you and ask your name and why you are on this journey going to Bethlehem!! The kids really love this course so do we adults. Our daughter Becky is quite the spirited kind so she was really into it!! They were going to make her sing/dance at the gates of Bethlehem!! Sure!!
You walk around our big lake and stop at each little gazebo and a scene from the 1st Christmas story is portrayed!! Then you get on a big barge and go across the lake to the other side. More stories are shown there. Then you get to go into Bethlehem. This year they really had a lot of details...A big well in the center of town; all kinds of people selling their wares; booths with carpenters; basket makers and etc. Animals are also there...roosters, small ponies; geese and goats. The Romans also ride around on BIG horses..stinky too!! smile!!
After we leave Bethlehem we go to see the Shepherds laying on the ground. They awake and see an angel announcing the birth of Jesus!! They ask us to go with them to see this great thing that has happened. We go to the manager and there is Mary and Joseph with a new born baby. Our pastor is there and he tells everyone about the 1st Christmas. The sweet little baby was crying too!! So sweet!!
This event is well attended here in our area. I am not sure the amount of people that come but it is in the Thousands!! It was well attended last night for sure.
WE are experiencing some bad weather right now!! We are under a tornado watch. It is raining and not looking the best right now. This is what you get for having such high temps in December. It is 71 here now at almost noon!!
I go this afternoon to get my hair COLORED!! YES!! I hate gray hair..Oh I know it is supposed to be because I have "earned these" BUT well I still don't like them!! Makes my attitude a lot better...think my hubby has FINALLY understood that!!
Not much else to report!! I am feeling good and just have to put up with any problems that i have...guess we all have to do that, don't we!! The bible says that God will not give us anymore than we can handle...so i believe that!!
Thought for the day:
Friends are like angels who lift us to our feet, when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.
