Light the World

This past week has been a week of Serving others and giving of time and talents to the community and to my loved ones. My heart is full❤️❤️

Nativity– Each year, the week after a Thanksgiving, I am blessed to be in charge of our church and community Live Nativity and Crèche Festival.

We enjoyed lovely weather and had over 3000 people attend.

The inside crèche festival was supported with over 200 Nativity displays and 600 drawings from local children.

We also had musical performances from local choirs and soloists. I feel so blessed to be a part of this event.

Quilting

I have also had the opportunity to quilt for the children of a dear friend who passed away last year. He left a beautiful wife and six young adult children behind.

My sewing friend, Lisa, gathered his shirts and made seven lap quilts! One for each of them:). I volunteered to quilt them on my long arm machine.

Lisa embroidered a name on each quilt to keep them from getting confused as to whose quilt is whose. What a great idea!:)

It has been a wonderful experience quilting and thinking of him and his family. The memories came flooding back as I looked at those shirts and thought of him❤️

Light the World– There are so many ways we can serve others everyday of the year, but I find it especially SWEET to focus on daily acts of service during the Christmas Season. If you are looking for service inspiration, please check out Light the World online. If we all take a moment of time each day this holiday season to give of our time and talents, we truly can LIGHT THE WORLD.
