A Week of Happenings

Quite a mixed week. It began on Sunday with house churches together at our Christian school for an informal time of praise and worship followed by a table laden with food
Relationships and eating together is an integral part of our worship











Followed the next day for Alan and I, the celebration of our 52nd wedding anniversary
and a Nativity Play in town put on by local churches (hourly over 2 weeks)

On the following day, painting a property on site that will house a group of young people from Ywam (youth with a mission) that we are hosting through 2012

with the funeral of an elderly neighbour the following day

 Thursday Janie and the Grandchildren were here for 9 hours
loved having them but ended up too tired for evening Carol singing in the street

So it was back to planning for Christmas today - quite a mixed bag

so taking the opportunity to wish all my blogging buddies a very Happy Christmas and Blessed and Peaceful New Year
