December 4

Our church’s children put on one seriously great Christmas pageant tonight.* Last night was the dress rehearsal, and I think I got most of my tears out then. Not all, though. Advent never fails to capture my imagination, and pair it with kids that I love, it’s almost too much. Put those kids in costume and let them sing. I mean, c’mon.

* The program was written and directed this year by my friend Amanda (this little angel is her Clara), and she absolutely killed it. Thank you, Amanda, for putting together and pulling off such an utterly enjoyable evening. And thank you, Redeemer, for the kids. They are spectacular.
