Prior to Christmas, we celebrated Christ's birth so many years ago, with a progam at our church. I was able to be in a chimes group, playing hand chimes I'd never before seen or heard. Gretchen and I had quite a learning curve on these instruments so we took them back to Kangaroo Ground to practice a few times. I was also in the choir and helped with one of the presentations of the toddler-age kids. Anytime you have kids in a program, there are chances for laughs so it was fun to see them share what they'd practiced and memorized and to have multiple reminders of why and how Jesus came to earth.
