So much has happened since my last post…school…One Voice…3 friends have died…my 50th birthday and Christmas. The photos, words and video below are just a glimpse of the craziness and blessing of December.
In the midst of the finals weeks of One Voice rehearsals we lost a friend and choir member, Dave Constant. What a blessing this man was. I remember him talking to John about the treatments they were going to try on him and not knowing if they would work. His comment to John was, “Either way I win…”. Dave fought the good fight and glorified God through his life. This photo is from our Easter production, “Alive Forever”. The song was, “We Followed the Man”.
I have circled Dave, in my book He
followed the man.
John offered to take me to the Nutcracker for my birthday. I decided what I really wanted was time with the family, so I asked to go to Wired for Christmas in Raymond, NH. This guy has tons of lights (check out the website) and music to go with the lights. It was a riot listening to Hilary, Katie and Andrew in the backseat on the trip down (they slept on the way home). We went to Applebee’s for supper. It was exactly what I wanted – family and laughter.

My 50th birthday present. An eternity band. The question then becomes does it mean John wants
to be married to me for an eternity OR it feels
like we’ve been married an eternity…LOL
One Voice was tiring, stressful, chaotic and an amazing blessing. One of the tech crew from the High School accepted the Lord last week. Welcome to the family Anna! The Drama was about a girl named Marissa who had made some poor choices, but finally came back to the Lord (and her family). After the last performance a woman came up to Karen (who played Marissa) and said, “You just told my story – that was my life…and by the way, my name is Marissa!!!”WOW!! Click on the photo below and it will take you to my photobucket account where you can see more photos and videos from the performance, then click on slideshow to view them. By the way that is John in the middle of this photo of the opening song…
Hilary’s favorite photo as she prods the Hippo with my monopod…
The girls Christmas morning. Lindsey’s hat says “Feliz Navidad” or as her Kindergartener’s say, “Feliz Ladeda!”
Katie’s gift to her sisters (and me). This painting is from a photo taken the day Katie was born. Lindsey and Hilary are in hospital gowns holding her in the hospital.
