Sis. Linda shared the Christmas story from Luke 2. Comparisons were made between the births of many of our recent babies at FBC to the conditions of Jesus’ birth.
      
   God could have had Mary already in Bethlehem and not have to travel 60 miles to the birth place, and
God could have prepared a comfortable room because, after all, He is God!
 
 He allowed all these circumstances to fall into place and testify of the humble nature and mission of the Messiah.
He is in control and orchestrating in our lives even when our circumstances seem not to make sense.

As usual we had delicious food, fun fellowship, and the White Elephant ornament exchange.

Some  ladies ended up going home with their first pick or their “stolen” pick …while others got their ornament rudely taken from them not only once, not only twice, but 3 times!!!
