This has been a busy week and continues to be, for this weekend, beginning tonight, are our three Christmas concerts at church. The theme this year is Emmanuel, God with Us. We have a concert tonight, one tomorrow night, and the final one on Sunday afternoon.
For a little while I thought I would be unable to sing in the concerts this year due to my absences - my sprained ankle and bad cold/cough. But I'm feeling so much better now and was able to return to rehearsals a couple of weeks ago. It's been so fun to use my voice again (it had gotten a little rusty) and be reunited with my choir friends.
Tonight Rachel's parents, grandmother, and aunt and uncle are going to be attending. This is so nice of them!! I think they have come every year for as long as I have known them (except this will be a first for Grandma Bernita). I'll get a chance to visit with them for a little bit.
Last year, our Saturday concert - and Sunday morning worship services - were cancelled due to a big snow storm. We don't have that threat this year (Thank You, Lord!). It will, however, be very cold for those attending tonight. I think the temperature is to drop to 2 degrees. Brr!
