YES!! Gotta get just one last post in about Christmas:
(1) 'cause it's gonna be February before you know it
(2) and I want to brag about my church!
The sun was shining brightly on the frozen ice in early December, but the roads were finally driveable. That was a big relief, because it was time for the Ladies of Grace Christmas brunch.
Each Tuesday from September to December, we have had an in-depth teaching on a different character from the Bible, learning lessons from their mistakes. The lessons are never ending as most all of them had some hang-up, dysfunction, weakness or strength.
But on brunch day, our gathering was all about fun and food and the annual gift exchange ... you know the routine. Bring a gift, select a gift, and then wait

|Aren't the chair covers cute?|
|The prize for best decorated table!|
Here are pics of just a few of our Tuesday morning ladies.

Don't we have some beautiful Ladies of Grace?
These pics reflect one of my very favorite things about our church:
It is a multicultural church - Everybody is welcome.
"How wonderful, how beautiful,
when brothers and sisters get along!" (Psalm 133:1-3 The Message)
Each week, no matter what service I attend,
I see a glimpse of what Heaven will look like one day.
All of us gathered together to worship, from every tribe, every nation.
And lastly, because a lot of our time on brunch day
centered around gifts and "stealing,"
I was thinking about the best gift ever
when God gave His Son for us.
Ain't nobody can ever steal that away!
"Thank God for His indescribable gift."
