Christmas for staff at Zion

But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God.  You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.  He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.  The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; His kingdom will never end.  Luke 1: 30-33

Each year we have a Christmas party for staff when we have lunch, dancing and gifts.  We are blessed to have a staff that we really care about and like to do some special things. They love Hungry Lion, which is the fast food place in our town.  It compares a bit to Kentucky Fried Chicken with fried chicken and hot chips.  So, that is what we have for the Christmas lunch.  (We actually have the party early – Dec 10 – before they all start taking leave and going out of town.)  We baked around 300 cookies this year including peanut butter, cut out and decorated sugar cookies and a bar cookie.  There was no chips for the seven layer bar cookie so I bought a bunch of different kinds of candy bars and cut them up and used them on top of crushed vanilla cookies then sprinkled with coconut and sweeten condensed milk.  Yummmy.

We are all thankful to God for His gift, His Blessing, His love.  And we are thankful to all of you that support Zion or us in some way; financial, prayer, encouragement.  Merry Christmas and God’s Blessings!

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.  Luke 2:14
