This morning I arrived at church in time for an 8:25 bell rehearsal, followed by choir practice. We rang bells for the prelude, began the service, rang some more, sang in the choir, had our regular service and an immersion baptism of a young man.
The flowers on the altar were in memory of 2 special women-my mother who died a year ago this month and Jerry's wife who died 8 years ago this month. The flowers were pretty red and white carnations.
Our bell choir brunch was great because we had time to relax, visit, eat, and enjoy the comforts of a member's beautiful home.
At 12:45 I headed back to the church to pass out carol books and bell necklaces to our caroling party. We sang all of the carols at an assisted living home, a nursing home, and several members' homes. It was fun to sing and visit with them a little bit. We gave bells to the people we sang for and let them ring and sing along.
Tonight I am back at home playing on the computer, keeping my cats fed and entertained.
