Monday Musings ...

This Monday is a very special Monday. Not only is it Christmas Eve, all of my kids and grandkids are here with us. They all arrived on Friday and Saturday, 9 of the 10 were in church with us yesterday. For some reason my son thought he needed to go home to his church for worship, since he is an Associate Pastor there, I guess I understand.

Yesterday was a very special day. The fact that nearly all of my family was in attendance was just part of the reason it was special It was special because it was the "Christmas Sunday", it was special because there was a good spirit in the service, it was special because we had a good attendance, it was special because we a brand new family in attendance and the greatest reason it was special was because we had people who accepted Christ as their Savior at the end of the service! It just doesn't get any better than that.

Our Christmas Musical that had to be rescheduled because of last Sunday's storm went very well on Friday evening. The choir and drama group did very well. The message was strong and really came through clearly. The place looked great and the desserts (it was a dessert buffet with the musical) were wonderful and we had an abundance of them. Our attendance was 220, that was below the 300+ we were hoping for on our original night, but was outstanding considering having to move it and with all of the other options we were up against. More than half of those attending were not from our church and many, if not most, were unchurched!

Here's hoping you have a great Christmas. I have already had a great Christmas and it is going to keep getting better. Merry Christmas and remember, there is "good news of great joy", a Savior has been born to you.
