Wow. It’s day seven already? That’s gone by fast.
Today, being Sunday, was an all-church day for me.
I wore my reddest, red lip gloss to match the season. (I really should buy a red lipstick. Suggestions?)
The school had set up a lit Christmas tree in our Sunday school class that looked so cool when they turned off the lights for our clip.
I was a fan.
In case you’re wondering why we’re watching The Grinch in church, it’s because my dad has a different way of teaching. (Us Koontz’ are just different.)
That’s my favorite picture ever.
Anyways, it was the scene where the Grinch’s heart grows three sizes, and he’s being tossed about, screaming, and crying for help because he’s “FEELING!” It’s the picture of growth for us in Christ. That we all have growing pains, where we need to put away our natural desires and focus on God.
After church, we rushed home to our crock-pot lunch. My mom made chicken and potatoes and it was so good. I also saw my first Christmas movie of the season, “Christmas with the Kranks.”
During which, my dad suddenly shouted at me “look, LOOK!”
I glanced, panicky, all around me, until I realized he meant to look out the window.
There, on the roof of my neighbor’s house, was a black cat, staring right at us, like it knew we were watching.
It proceeded to walk across the roof, where it squeezed itself under the little ledge and promptly disappeared. I never saw it again.
I laughed and said it was dropping in for a visit.
At 3pm, it was back to church for us, this time for choir practice. Some of you know I sing. I also play a few instruments, but I mostly sing at church.
Tonight was a special night, though, because at six, instead of our usual evening service, the kids put on a Christmas program!
I took the above picture of the whole cast, but also because I got a great shot of their adoring fan-parents, who were snapping as many pictures and close ups as they could. So proud.
I was partial – I think, as everyone was – to the sweet-pitched, murmuring Christmas trees in my first picture.
Between scenes of the drama were different solo’s and musical numbers, some of the same ones from the ladie’s fellowship, but I was pretty entertained. I think they all did a great job.
Who loves Christmas plays? I used to be in them all the time!
