i love making spotify playlists – i have one for background music, for worship, for soundtracks, for the kids and now one for our Daughters @ The River Christmas event tonight… its a mix of christmas jazz and classic songs sung by classic artists such as nat king cole, bing crosby, with a few newer versions – by michael buble, pentatonix, chris tomlin and a bit of neil diamond thrown in there (just because i can, its my playlist…!)

sunday arvo was our decorating space.  i confess that i think christmas lights are designed to test our character and fruityness (gal 5:22) and so i put the tree up on the evening before and hung the lights in the privacy of my own insanity.  then we put on some christmas music, thanks spotify, and hang to our content.

wednesday night was our last the best housegroup in the world night for 2013.  next year there are exciting changes and people moving on and fingers crossed more girls coming our way so in a way its bittersweet.  we had a dessert evening and then played the present game!  love the present game, esp when lots of stealing happens!




and as always.  i love Jesus with all i am and all my heart and all my soul and all my days. For His glory and the building of His kingdom and the rescue of the lost.
