Making Merry

We bid fond farewells to last week’s 50° weather as intermittent snow, wind and cold--down to a measly 1° yesterday morning—paid us a visit. I didn’t mind the return of winter, since it added a more seasonal ambiance to the weekend’s festivities: making sugar cookies and candy, a women’s breakfast, caroling at the home of a dear brother in Christ who’s battling brain cancer, decorating the church, and finally picking out a Christmas tree with Hubby. (It’s a small but gorgeous Colorado blue spruce, no doubt grown on a tree farm somewhere in the Northwest, where trees grow faster than they do here!)

In the midst of the merriment, I asked some folks, “Do you think we’ll have Christmas in heaven?”

One of them smiled. “Every day will be Christmas!”

“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!” –PHILIPPIANS 4:4
