The Christmas party was good. We had beef and chicken fajitas, with all the fixings. There was a cash bar, and quite a few people were lined up at it. And quite a few were displaying the effects. You could see that when they got on the dance floor. But they were all well behaved. In renting this ballroom where it was held, 2 cops came along with the package. I’m sure they have a few rowdy parties there. We didn’t even know this ballroom was there, in the back of this restaurant just a few minutes from our house.
Every couple got a ticket when they went in, for a drawing of $50 gift cards. We didn’t get one, but the couple sitting with us did. He said he had never won anything before. Every time they called a ticket number he was hopeful. Then the very last one they called was Aaron. His wife’s name is Stephanie. They live in Hamshire, TX, which is almost to the Beaumont/Port Arthur area.
We were the only 2 couples at our table, so we got to know each other. He is the youth and music minister at his church, and sometimes preaches. He also sings in a music group from their church. They are starting to do concerts at other churches, but have been singing together at their church a long time. I’m thinking this could come in real handy. I liked both of them.
I think this very well could be the reason we were supposed to go to the Christmas party tonight. Nothing happens in the life of a Christian that God doesn’t direct. And there were 4 of us right there at that table, and only us. Steve did not know Aaron was in any kind of church ministry. It will be interesting to see what God does with this.
4:20 p.m….I don’t know why, but I have “Angels We Have Heard on High” running through my mind. It’s a particular version they play on our radio station. And I don’t have a clue why, because I have not been listening to any Christmas music today.
I was in the process of getting ready to go to the party, when some interesting thoughts ran through my head. I do some of my best thinking in the shower (Or when I’m supposed to be sleeping.) And you probably thought I sing in the shower. I rarely do, unless I’ve got an upcoming performance and need to practice. I’ll post about it later.
1:20 p.m…Rats…..Steve called and said he will be finished testing in time to go to the Christmas party tonight. So I have a lot to get done between now and then. I had already planned on him working late and not getting to go. I know there is a reason for us going, because it seems to be against all odds that we are able to go. He’s been working late every night, once till after midnight. He thoroughly expected to have to work late tonight, too.
Can’t wait to see what the reason is.
And a quick hi to Ethan I’ve got some stuff to send to the sandbox that he and his cohorts will enjoy. Especially the toy. Beth gave me a funny look when she pulled it out of the package. I only got one…..so they’ll have to share. There will probably be some Kodak moments.
In case you ever need to know…..4 day old chicken club tacos from Chili’s are really not that bad.
