Light up the Night



Lighting up the night at Christmas time is something that we do to give back to our little community. Every year my Husband goes to this extreme project to thrill the town and the children of the town. He starts putting up the lights way before Thanksgiving so that Thanksgiving night we can turn them on and start the Christmas Merriment.  Most of the old lights have been traded for the new LED lights which save a lot of energy and money.  We went to the annual Christmas dinner with the Rotary International.  Every year we get invited by our friend to be their guest. The food is so fabulous, the Turkey moist and the stuffing fluffy. Yams and mashed potatoes, pie and wine. yummmm

After we stopped at one of the churches and viewed their Live Nativity.  It was wonderful they all wore beautiful costumes and the animals were all live, moo and bah and goose and duck. Songs of Christmas being sung. Truly a blessing.  I hope they do it again next year.  They went to a lot of work for this two day event.

My prayer is for an end to Cancer. My blessings go out to all those suffering with Cancer that they might have a new year Cancer free.............I believe in the power of prayer.            Hugs and well wishes...Diane Glass
