It was such a feast for all the senses - the scent of simmering spiced apple cider, soft strains of relaxing music, samplings of our bake sale sweets...
Joy's home was inspiring. Her unique garlands over each window were so pretty...It appeared that everyone enjoyed themselves as they lingered chatting with friends.
I hope that you can join us next year."For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." -Matthew 18:20
