Almost Finished!

As promised! The F.A.I.T.H boxes I have been working on all week. I finally finished my project tonight at church. I'll put bows on top of the boxes the day of the Cananta and that should complete my projects for this year. Things are coming together!! Just one more week!

Faith! For all I trust Him. Faith! For all I trust Him. For all I need the Father will provide. Faith! For all I trust Him. Faith! For all I trust Him. That’s the way my faith can be described.

What was suppose to be a very slow week for me, turned out to be pretty busy after all. I've been working pretty hard at trying to pull the rest of the stuff together for the Jr. Choir Christmas Cantata. I had the Faith letters to do, (Meaning, I cut out letters to spell the word FAITH and For all I trust Him, I'll take a picture tomorrow after I get the letter glued onto the gift boxes) and typed in all the information for the programs. I am almost done! I have some last minute shopping to do for it but that won't take me long.

A friend of mine called me yesterday and said that he and his wife (THANK YOU JOE AND JEN)were going to donate all the ornaments we need for our Christmas tree, for the Cantata. The main prop is a Christmas Tree! The cantata is called "The Christmas Family Tree". We needed a lot of decorations because the Christmas cousins will be decorating the tree throughout the play. My friend Barb called last night and said that she had the archway all put together for us and it is waiting in a back room for me to get when I get to church. (THANK YOU BARB) (The archway is going over a bench for a park like setting, I'll take pictures on Sunday)I love the family of God! Last but not least, a "Very Big Thank You" goes out to my husband for sending me the files for the program and for being very patient with me lately.

Two more weeks and it will all be over!

Some folks might not understand how rewarding it is to work with these young children. All the work I put in is always paid back in hugs from those little ones. One of the young girls asked me if I would help her with her solo on Sunday. This is all very rewarding to me, I love music and I also love working with the children.

I am soooo looking forward to it coming together this week. We are going to have a 3 hour practice right after church on Sunday. We will feed the children pizza and hopefully be able to go over the play 3 times. Next Saturday, we will have a four hour practice with the last hour being the dress rehearsal. We are inviting nursery workers, grandparents, anyone that can't make it on Sunday morning.

I got sick on Wednesday morning! I've been pretty much fighting something all week. I still have a throat thing going on and my body seems to hurt everywhere.
Hopefully, I am better by Sunday!

I don't want to forget to tell you about this very sweet award I received from

I have had to slow down my blog visits so I could get everything done for the Cantata! You'll are still very faithful friends to me.

Thank you Crystal, you are so sweet!

This is the program I have been working on for the past two days!

I hope you're getting better today, Lori! CONGRATS on the award and may all the church programs and rehearsals go well. ;-D

I understand about this being rewarding for you. I've also had to slow down on my blogging because our orchestra Christmas program is this weekend and we've been practicing every night this past week. We'll do it twice tomorrow, and then again Monday night. Then I can start thinking about Christmas shopping.

Does that boxes have some thing to do with Christmas?

What a cool idea for the boxes. You can use them year after year.

Congrats on the award too. I haven't seen that one before.

Stop over and enter my book contest.

I've been through many of those crazy "getting ready for a cantata or really big play" years. Costumes, sets, lines, sound equipment, lights, music, crying baby Jesuses (which miraculous turn into dolls in mid song).

This year, the stress is off. I'm playing a homeless woman in a 7 minute skit. Not many lines, mostly character work. Of course it will be tough wearing ratty clothes and bad hair and tape on my glasses on Christmas Sunday!

Oh the sacrifices we make...
