Good Folks, it is Friday, December 14, 2018.
Stories of Christmas’ past from some readers:
I remember going to the woods with my Dad and cutting down a cedar tree….bringing it home….making a wooden stand for the tree…..setting it up in the living room….and smelling fresh cedar inside the house all during December….and yes, it was a dry fire hazard when we took it down after Christmas. (DD)
My favorite Christmas memory is with my family in Wisconsin when we got a lot of snow and built snowmen in the front yard. (HB)
Edna and I have been married for 34 years as of August 25. She has had a tradition in our family to purchase a Christmas tree ornament with that year noted. She always purchased an ornament for our children’s first Christmas as well. One that I remember is of a Styrofoam material, little red glitter-like decoration with Paula’s name on it. We celebrated our first Christmas in Hawk Hall, room 305, on the campus of Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, in 1984.
Also, we had a “Tia Ester” tree that my Aunt Esther gave Edna which was always on display for many years.
Send me a memory or two of your Christmas past, if you wish.
There are 11 more days until Christmas Day. On the Monday before Christmas, we will have three services: 6, 8 & 10 pm, with childcare available at the first two services.
We will hear special music: O’ Holy Night, Mary Did You Know?, and a host of Christmas hymns. It will be a time to rest and give thanks. It will be a time to pray for those who will not have a loved one with them. A time to remember. A time to make new memories.
May the God of the Advent Season bless you beyond imagination, as we prepare to receive the Christ Child to be born and return for his Kingdom.
Blessings from Duncanville,
