It seems so long ago now looking back. That time every year that came months before Christmas where all the children would audition for the Christmas church play. How my little heart longed to be one of the many, many angels that got to do nothing but look beautiful. All that satiny white and glittery gold with wings and a halo no less appealed to me greatly. But every year when the list was posted for parts and I anxiously scanned the sheet looking for my name I never found it under the angel column. Instead I found that I had a solo or was part of another group. What a silly little goose I was for not realizing that I had gotten a much better part! Yet every time I see a tiny Christmas angel I’m transported to that time in my life. Christa, when I saw these pictures I had to smile because you made me into a Christmas angel without even knowing it. Thanks for giving me wings. Also thanks for doing my makeup and putting this outfit together. It was wonderful to show up and have no idea what was happening and just have fun in the middle of a hard week. Love you!
The best Christmas present for me would be if you would donate to my kiddos. Would you please give even just a few dollars today and enter into the joy of giving to orphans who truly need it? Thanks and Merry Christmas to all my wonderful readers!
Luke 2:11-14 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
