Christmas Bling!

'Someone' in this family does not like to put up outside lights and 'Someone Else' really loves to have them on the house; (neither does she want to look like the Scrooge Family lives here). Normally appearances & keeping up with the neighbors are unimportant to Someone Else, but this important and festive season does carry a bit of pressure with it. Yet, in the spirit of compromise - an essential component in a good marriage - an agreement was reached many years ago that Someone would put lights up every other year. This approach worked nicely for awhile until last year Someone conveniently got too busy and the holiday season came and went with no outside color on the house.

Last weekend, Someone Else bought 2 simple light nets to put on a couple of shrubs, sadly thinking that at least that would be something and not overburden her dear one to lay them on the little shrubs. He sweetly agreed and promised to do it while she was at work. But then something wondrous happened...a true Christmas miracle. Not only did Someone cover the shrubs, but he outlined the fence, along the roof and - biggest surprise of all - he bought YARD ORNAMENTS!! We have never had yard ornaments! Someone Else came home for lunch & suddenly became a child again, squealing in delight to see spiral trees, midget snowmen, and an ANIMATED reindeer. Animated yard ornaments!!!!! Jesus must really be coming back this year. And 'Someone' is going to have a specially merry Christmas :)

MORE BLING: This week the crew has been hard at work getting the stage dressed out for December and the Christmas production (Dec 15, 6pm; Dec 16 both a.m. services). Here's a sneak peek at some of what you'll see Sunday....

'Someone' must really love 'Someome Else'.

Knowing the GREAT challenges and hardships of putting up outside lights. I can see that 'Someone' must be a great person or 'Someone Else' has an incredible influence and affect on 'Someone.' 'Someone' must be totally dedicated to 'Someone Else', or either deeply in love with 'Someone Else' or just plain old afraid.
