We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Laughter rang out as the children sang “Bring us some figgy pudding” in this traditional song, as a group of over 50 Senior Saints enjoyed a shared time of food, exchanged gifts, and enjoyed the fun and festive friendship. The fourth annual event was a wonderful time of giving and receiving. A delicious meal, including oven roasted lemon chicken, salad, green beans, mashed potatoes, and whole grain rolls, was provided. Of course, the meal was finished off with coffee, and a choice of sweet treats such as apple crisp, cholate cake, and fruit-filled gelatin desserts.
Despite the pandemic, the end-of-the-year gathering was very cheerful and reminded us of upcoming hope. We offer thanks to our heavenly Father for all the wonderful blessings he provides continually such as the lives of these faithful saints who were honored at this holiday gathering. The greatest gift we offer our most profound thanks for is Jesus, who left the glories of heaven to be born and placed in a manger, “emptied himself by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men…he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore, God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow” (Philippians 2:7-10).
So, like the wise men who came from the East to bow down before Jesus with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh, we also offer our gifts of service before our King. And we do “Wish you a Merry Christ-mas”.
