On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me……Ah, tis the season for shopping and baking. Christmas parties at work, school, church. Outreaches to the community, Salvation Army bell ringers, Angel trees, coat and canned food drives. I led worship last night for the senior high students at my church. My dad was speaking about the angels in the Christmas story and how they were the “messengers”. He challenged the students at the end that we have been told this amazing story of Christmas.
It’s Day 10….that means there’s only two days left of my 12 days of Christmas…I think I’ll shed a tear right now. I’ve had a fun time sharing with you. Yesterday was a great day, I got to be a part of my church’s outreach to the community. They have a storefront at the mall where they provide free gift wrap. It’s a great way to show love to our community. I got to be one of the gift wrappers which was fun for me since I actually like to gift wrap plus I got to get to know a few people from my church that I didn’t know before.
Wow, it’s day 9. We are already almost a third of the way through December. Time is flying by. Today I’m going to serve with my church at an outreach they do in our community. Free gift wrap at the mall. That’s right they have a booth at the mall where they will provide free gift wrap for anyone’s gifts just as our church’s way of saying “We love you….Merry Christmas”. I’m pumped about being a part of it today and tomorrow (and let’s be honest,
Ho ho ho….man I heard reports of snow in places yesterday…..the winter season has arrived. I’m excited that it’s Day 3 during my 12 Days Of Christmas.
I was so excited to make my plans to record a Christmas CD this year. Thankfully I was thinking about it last Christmas and soaking up the season. I remember sitting around my music room in January and working on a few ideas to write a Christmas song.
Every day in my neighborhood there’s more lights and decorations up. On facebook I’m noticing people counting down the days till Christmas. I’m so excited! It’s day 2 of my “12 days of Christmas” so I wanted to share with you one of my favorite stories and it has to do with the song “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”.
I took ballet my whole life growing up. I always enjoyed the sport and art form.
It’s December! The month of Christmas is finally here. I decided to help kick off December I’d do a little something special here on my blog. It’s “Yancy’s 12 Days of Christmas”. For the next 12 days I’ll be sharing my thoughts on Christmas, stories behind the songs on my “Have A Fancy Yancy Christmas” CD and maybe even a few recipes. It should be alot of fun. Another exciting thing I think is the specials I’ll be offering.
