Lady Bugs' Christmas

Our Lady Bug Red Hat group had our Christmas meeting this afternoon.  Sonie has hosted this event for many years.  The tables were beautifully decorated and boxes of homemade chocolates were at each place setting along with a stuffed lady bug.  We enjoyed a delicious buffet dinner, sang carols and exchanged gifts.  Then we tried playing "Rhythm"--an old game from my teenage years.  I can't remember laughing so hard as 19 of us tried to remember our numbers and stay in the clapping rhythm required to carry out the game!  If we'd had the forethought to video our game, I have NO doubt we could have cashed in BIG TIME on America's Funniest Home Videos.  *What we lacked in skill, we made up for with determination!  I'm SO thankful for this group of friends!

*After writing that phrase, I couldn't get it (or the picture of us all trying so hard) out of my mind.  It made me think of the prayer King David prayed for his son in I Chronicles 29:19:  "And give my son Solomon the wholehearted devotion to keep your commands, requirements and decrees and to do everything to build the palatial structure for which I have provided."  I may have no skills to build or oversee the building of "palatial structures" in my lifetime, but what I lack in skill I will make up for in determination and wholehearted devotion to the Lord!
