Busy Busy Busy

That high school speech class is coming in handy as I "cut" a book, The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey, for a reader's theatre to be performed by our junior and senior high girls for the ladies Mug & Muffin at our church this week.

Each woman brings a Christmas mug cleaned and wrapped to exchange with another woman. We will then consume delicious quantities of muffins and coffees, teas, hot chocolates, and candies. We will be singing carols, listening to the young ladies perform, and forging friendships; all the things that women of any congregation enjoy.

The book is one of my favorites. Years ago, I made a goal of purchasing at least 24 picture books about Christmas so that I could read, as well as our Advent devotion, a new story each night to our girls. The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey has become an endeared favorite of our home. It's message is simple, without preaching, and causes pause for reflection and thanks for all the goodness with which we are truly blessed.

I have been asked to sing a song, as well. Heirlooms by
Amy Grant is a lovely and sweet song that incorporates the memories of family with the memory of the gift of Christ. I think it will be a perfect fit for the evening.

I want to hear you sing. Any recordings?

Off subject: Am I the only one who mourns the secularization of Amy Grant's music? Good choice of song! (Don't drink too much cocoa before you perform!!) Nerves can do funny things to the body...
