My family has missed advent services for the last few years. The drive to our previous church was too far for us to attend evening services. As I was getting ready to head over to out current church for choir practice, yesterday I remembered that choir was early due to the evening Advent service. We could go to Advent services this year!!
I yelled up the stairs for everyone to grab a quick supper and get dressed in matching, clean clothes while I was at choir. I told the children that I would race home after choir and pick them up for church. My youngest two girls were so excited to be able to go to church twice this week. Mike called me just before I walked out the door. He was coming home from work early, so we were able to go to church as a family. What a blessing to live close enough to church to attend evening services again!
