Some took part in a dramatic reading as Serena did.
And others were invited to paint during the service. Yes, that's me near the window.
I will put a few finishing touches to the painting this week and donate it to the church for a silent auction. It really was the best of both worlds. Spending a quiet morning in a beautiful setting, among good people, waiting for the "son's" arrival and sharing with others some of the gifts we have received.
