Juliet's Busy Day

I have a fun little friend at church.
Her name is Juliet.

Some things I enjoy about
Juliet....
She is a cute dresser.
Her smile.
 
Even if she does happen to enhance 
her smile with a pretzel.
Her sweet singing voice.
Her willingness to serve.

On Sunday I happened to catch
Juliet serving twice.

Once as she played for our final 
song....keeping the beat with the 
guys.....



Later she helped Miss Jenny put 
up and decorate the artificial
Christmas tree.



Some of us prefer a real tree
and so we kind of go back and forth.
I think it was our turn but as 
you know it has been a bit busy
around here lately.

Jenny volunteered to just go ahead 
with the artificial tree that was up in 
the storage area for just such a 
time as this.

She found a few dedicated volunteers
who built a tree in a very short time.
Then they added the lights...
that took the longest of the entire process.

Next simple ornaments.
And finally ribbon.



It came out pretty well
if you ask me.

It was sweet to see them working
together so nicely.
I'm thinking that my friend, 
Juliet might have needed a 
nap after her very busy day....
Such a sweetie, that one.

I love how our children and 
young people learn to serve
with joy.

What a blessing!

Disclaimer:  I asked for and received permission
from Juliet's mother to feature her in this post.
Thanks, Bonnie.

She's a keeper I'd say. I am going to practice enhancing my smile with a pretzel after seeing that sweet smile.

I am so glad a tree was put up! I have been busy too, and didn't get it done this year!

We love our sweet friends!

Juliet is a cutie. She and her friends did a wonderful job with the Christmas tree. My blueberry candle is burning right now. So enjoy the aroma. Thanks!

What an adorable little helper! I am sure Jesus was smiling watching little Juliet. I definitely smiled to see the pictures.
