Ladies Christmas Meeting December 3, 2011

OK, here I am with our Christmas meeting.  I said I hope to get caught up in a couple of weeks.  Well, so far I am on track.  I just have one more to do since we only have meetings every two months.  Hopefully, it will be up in a few days.  Maybe I have procrastinated a little, but on the other hand if you are babysitting grand children, helping hubby with book keeping,  taking sermon notes and getting them sent off to be posted on the church web site among other things, well that is part of the reason I stay behind.  Besides,  
Why put off today what you can put off again tomorrow?  :)
 
The best part about procrastination is that you are never bored, because you always have number of tasks that you should be working on. :)  


Don't you just love to smile?  Laughter is such a good medicine. 


Well, with all that said, let us move on.



What a beautiful Christmas Meeting we had!  Two of our ladies, Jenny and Hannah took charge and helped provide beautiful decorations and scrumptious food.   We had somewhat of a traditional meeting with a few games, some Christmas Carols, and a devotional by Mrs. Mary Rosenau.
Our games included Name that Christmas Carol.  Below are the clues:
      • down where He lay
      • silent stars go by
      • in Heavenly peace
      • ride and sing
      • field and fountain
      • and sweet the words
      • dancing in the night
      • a cold winter's night
      • made of snow
      • how are thy leaves
      • gather near to us
      • I used to know
      • snow is glistening
      • no place to go
      • King of angels
      • triumph of the skies
      • the mountains in reply
      • deep and crisp
      • prepare Him room
      • our finest gifts
      • to you and your kin
      • dressed up like Eskimos
      • only in my dreams
      • my true love
      • the weary world rejoices
      • smile after smile

I hope your Christmas 2011 was a time of reflecting upon our Savior and why He came to earth.  For without Him we would have no Christmas at all!

WELCOME

Welcome to a Ladies Be Joyful. Would you like to live a joyful life? You have come to the right place. The greatest joy you can have in your life is to find Jesus Christ as your Savior. He offers abundant life to anyone who puts their trust in Him. There is more than enough for everyone! When you have found new life in Christ you have crossed God's bridge to eternal life. When we cross from this life into life eternal, that will be another great joy! So if you have not experienced new life in Christ then look here or here to find out how to experience that joyful moment which brings peace that passes all understanding.
As you visit, perhaps you will find some other resources that will contribute to more joy in your life. It is my desire that these resources will be beneficial to you and will bring some extra joy into your life. May the Lord's blessing be upon you and may you know Him and the abundant joy that only He can give.

Full Joy
