Gloria is the ” underdog ” we all love rooting for… even if she is an angel! Because, in spite of her status Gloria represents all of us at different stages in our lives when we feel that we seem stuck in the wrong place at the wrong times. Yet… we never give up hope that at some cosmic moment in history we will be at the right place at the right time and it is this hope that keeps us faithful and trusting in God and His direction and path!
Gloria is klutzy, unkempt, and always late for everything in life… until the day she isn’t! Until she, alone, announces God’s Son to the World! We ended the story with everyone singing Angels We have Heard on High… belting out the ” Gloria ” refrain! It was so much fun!
Ann Graves sent some pictures-it was outdoors with fairy white lights strung in the trees, white candles-it was simply beautiful-I could not have ended 31 years of storytelling in a better environment!
Ann wrote this thank you for 31 years of storytelling-a memorable literary” marker.” Thank you Ann!
Earlier in the afternoon the Barbour clan arrived and we had fun with everyone exchanging Christmas gifts and admiring the magical skills of Rhodes the Remissioner!
Tomorrow Christmas breakfast brunch at Mandy’s with all the grandchildren -deep breath-here we go again! Fun Fun Fun!
So until tomorrow… I wish everyone ” a little more sparkle and a little less stress-for everyone I wish only the best! ”
Today is my favorite day-Winnie the Pooh
While I heated up the spaghetti-Ben got a roaring fire going-the best way to end the day!
MERRY CHRISTMAS! 🎄🎁
So happy that all went well with the service and Ben …glad his family got to visit. Merry Christmas.
