How are you? Blessings to you this happy Saturday (or whatever day it is when you’re reading this). It is the 47th week of TGI Saturdays and I’m so blessed to have you visit our “Countdown to Christmas” party. Today is December 12th and we have just about 13 more days until Christmas day. How is your Christmas season going? I hope filled with smiles, laughter, fun, joy, faith, hope, generosity, thankfulness, love and everything else Christmas represents.
I’ve got a few more icebreaker questions for you this week, because I just love to hear about your Christmas. I enjoy all your answers to my questions last week. You all made me smile.
Question 1.) What is your Favorite family Christmas ornament or decoration?
Question 2.) What is your favorite thing to do at Christmastime? (e.g Baking, Listening to Christmas music, Watching Christmas movies, Shopping, Decorating, etc)
Question 3.) Other than Christmas gifts to family and friends, how do you give to others during the Christmas season? (e.g donate, help organize Church Christmas party for kids, Angel Tree, etc)
Question 4.) Did you watch the musical “The Wiz” on NBC last week, did you like it?
I did (question four). I thought is was such a fabulous production, the music, the performances, the costumes, the set, the staging, everything. The one thing I could have done without is the “poppy” dance routine. It was too sensual, the dancers looked practically naked, even though they weren’t. I also thought Dorothy’s skirt was too short. I was watching with my kids, you know. Other than that, I really liked it and want to watch it again. Anyway, did you watch?
To answer the other questions. One of my favorite things to do at Christmas is decorate the Christmas tree. Which I did get to do last weekend. Yeah! I’m always in awe at how majestic a Christmas tree can be, especially lit at night. Our Christmas tree is simply exquisite. I have nothing but good memories associated with decorating a Christmas tree. This is our first Christmas tree in our new home.
My favorite decorations are our Christmas Angels. I love Angels. They are so pretty and of God.
And to answer question 3– There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens (Ecclesiastes 3:1) At this juncture of my life, doing for others outside my family circle doesn’t seem very doable (you’ll have to know my whole story to know what I mean).
I can barely manage being for my family all that they need me to be. I feel as though, this year I’m the one who needs the help. However, I hope to be in a better place in the future, to give more of myself and to help others with needs I can fill, not just at Christmastime, but whenever that need presents itself to me. I would also very much like to teach my children to do this as well.
I wish you continued blessings and happy memories this Christmas season and all your seasons to come.
Blessings to you.
