Ready for Opening Night!

Sunday night is the big night.

After weeks of rehearsals – hours of sewing and singing and writing – the Children’s Christmas Program is really coming together.

And as it came together – we all saw both in the story we tell on stage, and more importantly in real life – that God always provides.

Christmas Program 2012He provided costumes – many of them free.

All the girls have jumpers, blouses, and great big hair ribbons.

All the boys have knickers, sweater vests, argyle socks and hats.

Everybody has black shoes.

God provided everything we needed on stage – including a front porch complete with screen door, window and a rocking chair.

He provided all the props – the quilts, the wagons,  even the horse.

Now – after taking the kids on the road for a dress rehearsal at the local nursing home – we’re ready for the big night.

It’s always a little sad when it’s all over.  I really love working with the kids – and this has been such a fun program!

Soon this Christmas program will be just a memory – but I hope and pray that the kids remember the lessons learned in the program – that God always provides.

  1. Amazing costumes!!! Just beautiful!!

  2. Looks like it’s going to be a great program. I’ll be so glad when our new church is in its own building and we can have Christmas programs and such. Right now we are in the YMCA gym, so scheduling seems to be a bit of an issue when it comes to extra things. But by April 4 we are supposed to be all moved in to the new to us building.

  3. You do such a great job Melinda!

    So thankful for you~
