Deck the Halls

Hello, Dear Ones! I truly hope you all had the most wonderful Thanksgiving! We sure did at our house. We ate and ate and then ate a little more! :) But we were ever so thankful!

I know you all are getting out your decorations for Christmas to make your home look so pretty and festive. Well, I have started decorating...got two trees up and Mr. Precious has put some tiny lights outside. But that's all I've been able to do.

I've got a couple of really busy days coming up and won't be able to start on my serious Christmas decorating until the end of the week so I thought I would show you a couple of pictures from my church. Last Sunday afternoon a group of us met and decked the halls! We put up the tree and I think it's so pretty!

This is a large Nativity of mine that I always bring to church each year. I like to share! :) We all enjoy it until our Christmas Eve service then I take it home and put it under our tree. Can you see it is sitting upon the piano? This is where I sit each Sunday and play my note songs for church and to God. I love to play the piano and I feel this is my gift each week to give back to God for all He does for me.

Well, I'll be back in a few days and maybe then I can show you some Christmas around my house.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel


O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny
From depths of Hell Thy people save
And give them victory o'er the grave
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, O come, Thou Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai's height,
In ancient times did'st give the Law,
In cloud, and majesty and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.
