I’ll be the first to admit that I tend to use too many superlatives. When I get excited about something I want to express it. I got excited last night! One of the words that gets over-worked is “AWESOME”. However, sometimes I don’t know of any other way to express what I feel. So, here I go–our annual Christmas program last night was simply AWESOME!
I can’t remember a year when our program wasn’t AWESOME, but every year is different. Some might say one year was better than another, but I have a hard time seeing it that way. Again and again I say the program was AWESOME. Every year my heart is stirred and my soul is thrilled. Last night I left the service with a spring in my step and joy bells ringing in my heart. I was truly blessed, as were many others. We had hardly got home before the phone was ringing and people were talking about how AWESOME the program was.
I want to thank all those who helped, in whatever way, with our program. Your hard work is greatly apperciated, and it will also be used of the Lord in some special way. Our children will remember this event many years from now. That makes it all worth while. We have many talented and dedicated workers who helped, but a special word of thanks goes to Jennifer and Julie Morris, two exceptionally gifted young ladies, who directed the program. I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart.
Of all the good things that could be said about our program here’s the best of all–we were reminded that Christ has made salvation possible for all who will receive Him as Lord and Savior. That’s what Christmas is all about! For that reason I say with the apostle Paul, “Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.”(1 Cor. 9:15).
