December 11-12: See a Concert, Sing Along

This past weekend, our church had its big Christmas program. It was Cody's debut singing with the children. I sang in the choir (under my husband's direction) and also participated in a women's ensemble. There's something so special about being with other people and listening to (or singing!) good music that just puts a person in the Christmas spirit! And of course, when you can worship the Lord...it's even better!

If you can, try to take in a school or community concert, a church program, or an all-sing of a big choral work like Handel's Messiah. This is the perfect thing to do if you need a spiritual or mental boost. I don't know about you, but as we near the middle of the month, I start wondering...am I going to get it all done? My list is still so long and I wanted to be further ahead than this! Or, in my situation since last Thursday....I don't have TIME to be sick! I have too much to do!

And then....that small voice. "Be still and know that I am God."

Okay, Lord. I will.

I love all you ideas for celebrating Christmas. It's fun to see what you come up with next:)

And I sure need to Be Still before the Lord myself in the busyness of December!!!
