The show must go on!

Zechariah 8: 5
" The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there. "


Last weekend, my family and I went to see a Christmas show "Deck the Halls" at the American Music Theatre in Lancaster, PA.  What a great show! This Bible verse reminds me of show. This year the show's setting was at a hotel in New York City. The stage was filled with performers of all ages. Children were playing in the street. There was even a cute Bichon pup that wowed the audience with his performance. There really wasn't a plot, it was more of a setting, showcasing the beautiful voices and talents of the performers, and just about every Christmas song and carol you can think of! My SIL and I were sharing on the drive home, how motivated we were to "get our Christmas on". I know for me personally, I put  the Hallmark Channel on the second we got home, and the girls and I baked a batch of cookies (Grandmom's Butter Cookies-click here for recipe "Hiding place").

This was a visually beautiful scene where there were angels singing and dancing in front of a church like backdrop.

I'd love to know what get's you in the holiday spirit. Please comment below. Is it Christmas music? Baking? Cutting down the Christmas tree? A special service at church?  I look forward to hearing from you.

Today I pray that the Lord bless you and keep you- that His face shines on you, and be gracious to you:  that He lifts His countenance to you and gives you peace! (Numb.6: 24-26)
