Again with the Merry!

Christmas lightsChristmas lights and reflection at Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC) in Annapolis. I’m not quite ready to let go of Christmas 2019. I am ready for a new decade. Let’s agree to relive the Roaring Twenties of the 20th Century!

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!

Well, tomorrow is the big day. Are you ready?

For every single holiday, these folks go all out. Even Valentine’s Day will find their yard chock-full of decorations. I wonder where they store all that stuff. They must have a storage unit of some kind.

Another Merry Christmas!

For the first time in many years, I find myself really caught up in the spirit of Christmas. The good people at Heritage Baptist Church are a big reason for this spiritual change. Here are some more photographs from their Nativity pageant. Merry Christmas everybody!

Nativity 1

Everybody was so friendly and welcoming. There were lots of stations where parishioners told different parts of the story of Christmas. Here we learn why our Savior was called Jesus of Nazareth, and how Bethlehem fits into the narrative.

Heritage 2I’m guessing that this little fella from the petting zoo may have a bit of trouble seeing where he’s going.

Some parishioners were shepherds. Some were angels. All of the children were simply adorable!

Cee’s FOTD Challenge: December 22, 2019

Another bouquet for Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge! When Jez Braithwaite submitted a couple of bouquets for this challenge, it really caught my attention. So I decided to wait a couple of weeks, and then give it a shot. As imitation is the highest form of flattery, I do hope you will accept the compliment, Jez! Bouquet 2

And as it is Christmastime, I feel obliged to post a nice wreath. Merry Christmas to all!

Merry Christmas!

Stay turned to this blog for more posts about the Nativity Pageant at Heritage Baptist Church on Forest Drive in Annapolis, Maryland. What a warm and welcoming group of people did I meet tonight! The animals in the petting zoo were cute. The children who participated as everything from shepherds to angels were adorable. Everybody was in the Christmas spirit, and I was no exception. I must have wished people a “Merry Christmas!” a hundred times, if once. I also sprinkled all and sundry with “God bless you!” so full of a benevolent spirit was I. Nativity 1

Merry Christmas to all!
