In two hours will be our Malmo Mission Covenant Church Candles and Carols Christmas Eve Service, or MMCCCCCES for the newbies out there who need a program to follow along.
I've been here most of the day and I do believe things are ready. Candles set up, readers contacted and service printed, projector working, sanctuary cleaned up a bit, it all good.
And I think Lauralea is ready too, sooner than we have been in previous years it feels like. Probably because we are not going anywhere tomorrow, and we have had less social events to attend this year. Being new does have it's advantages it seems.
At last word Johanna and Nate made it to the Seattle airport for a flight out late this afternoon to his home in Wisconsin. I'm a bit worried with all the flight cancellations and weather trouble, not to mention that its been snowing again there all day, that they may not make it home for Christmas. Then I saw there was an incident at that airport with a plane and some de-icingÂ fluid making a planeload of people quite sick. Hope they make it.
And you, may the joy of Mary upon seeing her new born son be in your hearts. May God fill you with his Spirit and speak to your innermost being, guiding you in the way you should go. And may the love of Christ surround you and shine forth from you; both now and forevermore.
I hope you have a great week.
