It’s the first Sunday of the new year and there is no other way to start it than to listen to the voices of our beautiful choir sing Handel’s Messiah – Hallelujah Chorus. It has been tradition at Idlewild to sing this the first Sunday in January for years and years, and every year I look forward to it. So beautiful.
The rest of the day we watched football, cleaned, and spent time getting ready to start the week tomorrow. I captured this picture of Matty today. My friend Nichole was doing a little spring cleaning and her boys are all older now and have moved past the train phase, so she packed up all of her train toys and brought them over for Matty. As you can see they never made it past the foyer and up the stairs. We figured, “why not!” and decided to let him play with them down here for a while. 🙂
Pastor Ken started off with this scripture this morning:
‘Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matt 5:16’
Let the light shine baby….let it shine!
