Absolutely beautiful atrium at Christmas! 

Dennis speaking on Saturday. What a wonderful message on JOY! Listen HERE if you missed it!

A friend texted me this picture on Saturday night; A finished Advent Set from our DIY brunch on Saturday. Fantastic!

RESPITE (special friends ministry) CHRISTMAS PARTY! Great decorations, amazing volunteers, beautiful room serving the volunteers a catered dinner, gifts on a table, program in the auditorium. Amazing!

Ah sheesh. Came home to these, dreamy, amazing pork tamales. Seriously, could I have it any better?!


COLD, COLD morning...

Also, as I looked at my gas tank, I'm thinking you're not supposed to do that when it's 14º outside. Then someone said, "I didn't think you're ever supposed to do that." 

7am & we're getting the rest of our phenomenal light fixtures hung!

YES!! New coffee cart & It's locally owned!

Whoopsy! A bit zombie-like in the rehearsal! 

Josh & Alysia Sturgis...Josh was a buddy in high school & I loved seeing them dedicating 
baby Drake at church today! I also loved laughing to tears with these 2 in the atrium.

The band really scored on left over food from the women's christmas brunch..but then oh sad, Frog-Eye salad hit the floor! 

And then I was holding the bowls & cinnamon rolls...Like. A. Baby...But listen, I had 3 kids in 3 years. So that's just how I hold things. Ok, I was exaggerating a bit for the pic. :)

Beautiful Christmas stage. This is absolutely my favorite Christmas stage yet. 
Here are some pictures captured by people & posted to Facebook or volunteering.

Lastly, when I walked to my car, this it what I found and my JOY was spilling over. What an amazing weekend!
