Things just get busier and busier the closer it gets to Christmas. I plan well in advance, I prepare early, and yet I still end up feeling very busy.
Today's scripture was Matthew 14: 15-21. In this passage Jesus feeds the multitude with the loaves and fishes. We see that Christ had the power to perform miracles and had compassion for others.
This year, rather than making a lot of different treats to give to the neighbors a couple of friends and I had an exchange where we each made two goodies and then traded, so when we were done there were six different goodies for each plate.
The girls helped me make some chocolates, peanut butter balls, and fudge and then after our swap with friends we arranged some plates. I asked the girls to each pick a friend from church that they would like to bring some treats to and then we dropped some plates off to some of our other neighbors.
It was snowing and cold, but we bundled up and dropped off our treats on our way the Lily's dress rehearsal for her dance recital.
