Christmas meeting/luncheon NJ

Good morning Ladies ~ Well, here it is Christmas holidays once again.  Down here in s.e. FL it is a very chilly 51 and feels like it is 43. To us, that is COLD.

Here’s a Christmas tune to start off our holiday season.

‘It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas’ by Johnny Mathis.


Today’s post features pictures taken at the Christmas meeting for our New Jersey sisters.

Diana ~ Thank you for all of the photos you have taken in the past couple of years. You are doing a great job!

What a lovely table setting.


Eileen and Lois have been faithfully serving with this ministry for over 25 years.


Here we have Becky with the poinsettias that were given to each lady attending.


Mary Lou (l.) present director, and Eileen (r.) assistant director.  Eileen has served with each of the directors since Dotti.


Meet Mildred and Livesta.


Here we have the birthday girls.

*Happy Birthday* to all of you.


Look at these dear ladies decked out in holiday finery.  They look so Christmassy and cheerful. I hear they had really nasty weather that day, but had a great turn out of 98 ladies, including 8-9 visitors.


The couple shown in this picture are Bonnie and Jose.  They brought the Jewish Hanukkah Menorah and told the history behind it.  If you wish, you can read about the history  here.



Below is a song sung for this celebration.


As we begin to celebrate our Christmas holidays let us remember that ‘Jesus is the Light’ who came into this world, to save us from sin and darkness, to give us joy unspeakable and full of glory.

God incarnate in a little human baby. The Word, Jesus, was made flesh and dwelt among us. He grew from a baby into a lad, on into manhood, where He ministered to many, and died on the cross and rose again so that we’d be free.

 He is with us today by His Holy Spirit.  We are not alone, God is with us and will never leave us.

I will close with this beautiful song.

‘Immanuel’ by Michael Card
