 Hello, friends!  I am having a hard time keeping up with this blog.  I just don't have a lot of time.  I am running doing errands or I am sick and sleeping.  So please forgive me.  I'm also trying to keep up with my YouTube channel.  Vlogmas is not for the faint of heart.  But hopefully in the new year I will get better.  And I apologize for not getting around to reading all of your posts.  There just isn't time!

Last week I spent 10 hours one day just doing church work.  Between the bulletin, studying for my Bible study (the one I teach) and working with Joe on his sermon (he's preaching Sunday) and his elder work I was very busy.  By the end of 10 hours (I didn't even stop for lunch!) I laid down and slept for four hours.  Joe woke me up telling me he had made dinner and it was ready.  What a sweetheart he is!

Yesterday we were running around and I spent four hours in the car.  I was in a lot of pain by the time we got home.  Joe went to Urgent Care because he had a very bad cold.  It turned out he has a sinus infection.  Then we had to go get his prescription.  He is better today so hopefully he will be OK by Sunday.

Last Sunday we had our annual Christmas Cafe.  It is always a lot of fun.  I made a video about it so you can go to YouTube and see it.  But I also took a lot of pictures and I will show them to you.

This is the advent wreath on our communion table.  Four candles are lit.  Just the Christ candle to go for this Sunday.

We have lots of poinsettias around the sanctuary.

Candles on our windowsills.  So pretty.

Little Christmas trees on the tables in Fellowship Hall.

We had a guest soloist, Bekah Foster.  She sang and played four songs.  And she was so good!

At the end we had our usual Christmas Carol sing along.  So fun.

I have been meaning to take a picture of our beautiful wreath for weeks and finally did it.  It is in the hallway just inside the front door.  It's the first thing you see when you enter the building.

Thanks for coming along.  Christmas is coming quickly!  Too quickly for me.  I will be back soon.  Hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas season.



  1. How wonderful your husband is still preaching. My dearest was a Pastor for over 50 years, but due to age and health he had to retire. He still studies like he was preaching every Sunday. Don't we love these men of ours. Your church looks delightful.

  2. Hi Kathy! Your Christmas Cafe at church looks great. I hope you and Joe are both feeling better soon. I am keeping up with your Vlogmas posts over on youtube for the most part, and I enjoy them. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  3. No need for apologies, Kathy. You're a busy gal. Stay well and I am so glad that Joe was able to get help for the sinus infection. Everything looks very festive for Christmas. What a blessing to have a guest who could really sing. 😉 Merry Christmas!

  4. Decorations are so pretty! I think everyone had a good time.
    Hoping you & Joe both feel better.

  5. The decorations around your lovely church look wonderful. I hope you and Joe are doing good and have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! Merry Christmas!

  6. First, belated 🎄wishes to you and Joe and I hope you were both feeling well enough to celebrate together or with family and friends. There is never any need to apologize for not having enough time because it happens to everyone. We wish you both all the best for the New Year.
