Before we left the house, I had to get a couple pictures of my beauties. At first Sydney was not happy about the picture taking, and I caught her pouting! But then, she lightened up!
The Sunday School walked into the sanctuary while "O Come Little Children" was played. It's a tradition.
Then, it was time for their cue...and the four little girls brought gifts to baby Jesus and said:
"Oh come to my heart, Lord Jesus, there is room in my heart for thee."
And then a big finish...singing, "Get all excited and tell everybody that...Jesus Christ is born!"
It certainly was fun for them (and all of us there)! Afterwards, we proceeded downstairs for cookies and all the kids, well, the whole congregation, received the traditional apple. Ah...such wonderful memories...
I still remember my very first Sunday School program in this same church. I can still recite my piece:
What can I give him, poor as I?
If I were a shepherd, I'd bring a lamb.
If I were a wiseman, I'd do my part.
Yet, what can I give him? Give him my heart.
