It is a Sickness

Immediately following the Thanksgiving Concert
I walked back the aisle, perhaps ten feet to
the spot where Mrs. Rabe met me.

We looked at each other...smiled...
and she said,
"So, what are we going to do next?"

I responded,
"The Christmas Tea!"

I am guessing that this reveals a lot
about our sanity...or lack thereof. lol

So...yesterday four of us went on a hunt
for paper to make invitations for our first
ever Sonrise Christian Fellowship Ladies
Christmas Tea.

Such fun!

It was made all the more fun because we had
to stop off at "that church" on the way and
pick up the candles.

These ladies wanted to see where it was that
I made a fool of myself at the funeral. They
read this blog...gets me in trouble sometimes,
as you can imagine.

Anyway, to get to the Flower and Craft Warehouse
we had to cross a lot of Lancaster County Miles.

It is nearly the entire County's difference from
Quarryville to Blue Ball, especially if you go by
way of Rohrerstown.

The sky was full of wintry clouds.

I say full, but there were breaks in the clouds where the
sun was blasting through.

The sky ahead would be steel grey but the land would
be illuminated so brightly that the white fences seemed
to be glowing. It was so pretty. I was driving...and
did not have my camera so you'll just have to imagine it.

Do you remember when our imaginations did all of the work?

Before we watched so much TV.

When we read for pleasure on a regular basis.

I grew up without TV and so I read all of the time.
It was so fun to get lost in the world an author created.

Anyway, I digress.

The several hours we spent out traveling the countryside
getting these things accomplished was made even more
special by the fellowship inside of the car.

It was sweet.

I am so thankful for the ladies I spent time with yesterday.

We are all strong personalities.

Sometimes this can cause struggles.

But, I love each one dearly.
God has put them in my life...
and I THANK HIM for doing so.

I hope you have those someones in your
life for fellowship, and who will keep
you accountable in your daily walk.

Have a super day!

I think doing the tea will be so fun, especially with Kelly making the invitations!

I wish I was there!! Can you work on my husband...or start praying real hard!! Was the Flower and Craft Warehouse all decorated for Christmas??? ***sniff sniff***

I think I will stow away in Evan's suitcase.

I hate these fires I want cool weather!!!

I bet you could get a plane ticket.

I don't even think we saw a quarter of the Warehouse. We had just about an hour before it closed. Just enough time to get what we came for and nothing else...sniff....

I hope the fires are out SOON!

hahaha...funny, Becky! I love how you inject a lot of humor here and in your life. :o) But your tea sounds wonderful--what a great idea! It would make this already special time of year even more fun. I love such things myself...Hope you have a great time preparing for this, and look forward to hearing about it! Happy week ((HUGS))

I love going to craft warehouses or boutiques!! My mom and I went to a few boutiques a couple weekends it!! When I was little my mom decorated so much and she even held her own boutiques in our house year after year at Christmas time, it was so much fun!!
