Twas The Concert Before Christmas

Last Friday the Beginner, Middle School, and Advanced Bands played a Christmas concert at Faith Academy.

We are really pleased with the high quality music program Faith offers our kids. Kirsten did an excellent job in the percussion section of the two bands she plays in.

Kirsten playing snare drum. She really does well!

Concerts like this are great for remembering the Christmas season is upon us.
Next week, the elementary choir is performing a Christmas cantata.
Every year, in this warm climate, it often doesn't "feel" like Christmas to me.

But we have decorated our house and are in the process of baking cookies, buying gifts, going to Christmas get-togethers (and hosting a few ourselves.) Christmas carolers have been coming to the door at night to sing. I've been playing Christmas music in our house!...

Praying your holiday preparations include keeping the center-focus on Christ!

Isaiah 9:6For to us a child is born, to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
