True confession, I missed church this morning! I didn't set my alarm because if I sleep in on Sunday, that means like 8 am. Not today, I woke up at 9:46 am and church starts at 10 am. Instead of rushing to only arrive thirty minutes late was not an option. I require time in the morning, I love mornings yet I'm not quick about it.
I felt bad about missing church, especially since I had my clothes laid out to help a kiddo with his role in the Advent reading. I'm thankful to report, he did a great job and didn't need me. It's wonderful to see the kiddos growing up and shining in their own gifts and talents.
My church family is wonderful, my Secret Sister sent this trio of Minion ornaments to me via special messenger, aka a church friend stopping on his way home to deliver so my secret sister remains a secret until next month. Last month my secret sister gifts brought tears to my eyes and hope to my heart. Blessings to count.
My daughter and I watched "Prancer" since it started at ten when my coffee was finishing. Then at 12:36 pm I realized we were late a second time today. Yup, Mags was supposed to be backstage at 12:30 preparing for the 2 pm show. Ugh! I called and explained to the director we were on route. She chuckled and said she'd see us soon.
In spite of our late starts, it was a great day! Instead of getting cranky or beating myself up for my tardiness, I enjoyed the day. God knows my heart, and yours.
What is your heart's desire this Christmas?
