Best of both worlds

Ok - so this is going backwards a day but Sunday was a new experience for me.  The focus this month at my church in addition to the obvious focus of the gift of the birth of Jesus, is the other gifts that we receive and give to God.  Members throughout the month were invited to share their gifts during the service.  Some shared their gift of music such as Aaron is.

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.
