Yes, I am still here... I just have been so busy since we got home from Thanksgiving at my parents'. Last week I spent everyday getting our church decorated for Christmas and helping to get things ready for the servant/leader Christmas party that was on Friday. It was a busy but very fun week. Here is a picture of me and my friend, Stacy hanging snowflakes from the atrium area at church... it is a long way up there.
Next Monday is our Night Out For Ladies Christmas event, so this week is spent in preparation for that. We usually have anywhere from 300-500 women... so there is lots to do again this week. However, when I woke up Saturday morning I had a scratchy throat which has now turned into a chest cold. I have too much to do... I don't have time to be sick.
Our Christmas tree is up with lights, star and tree skirt, oh and 3 ornaments but that is it so far! It will all get done and what doesn't I just have to let it go.
I was reading in II Corinthians 1:3-7 this morning and the thought came to me that my suffering will NEVER outweigh God's comfort... I am so thankful for that.
I just took some cough medicine and now I am gonna cozy in for the evening in my "snuggie".
with a grateFUL HEART, carin
