Hospitality, Friendship, Encouragement

 We had a fun weekend. 

Saturday late afternoon Tim and I headed out with my parents to "see the lights!" We saw two light shows, both by donation for Charities, and we took them to Herr's as well.

First up was Messick's in Mt. Joy. {here}

Then we drove to Strasburg where a private residence was doing a light show to benefit Schreiber's Pediatric Center. {here}

This light show was about 7 full length songs long! Really well done.

I wish I had a taken a few photos of the houses close to the Herr's Snack factory in Nottingham. They have started to do all white lights, Icicle and regular on their houses, and a few businesses as well and it's magical. I really want to do this next year!

On Sunday we went to church then came home and made tacos. Wes and Rachel joined us for the afternoon, and there was painting, and then later some Mario Cart and Quiddler.

In the evening Tim and I watched the first episode and most of the second episode of The Chosen. It's so good. We would have finished the second episode except the app kept having issues. We're going to try it on their YT channel.

We are now officially on Christmas Break. Sarah will be home tomorrow night late. Their break starts after classes at 12:00. Her friend Mary will be staying overnight, and then head home to upstate New York the next day. 

Today I have an appointment at a local wellness center that is staffed by doctors and nurse practitioners. Tim and I have been wanting to make the change from a big business medical practice to integrative health care. Since we are self pay anyway (we use Samaritan Ministries), we can go anywhere we want. I'm a little nervous because it's a big change but I'm hopeful to get better care. A way to help heal my body of some issues, rather than throw a prescription at it to deal with symptoms. They have chiropractic care as well, and they have regenerative medicine. I'm looking forward to help with my back.

I'll tell you all about it tomorrow!

Hope your weekend was great!

Precious few lights to be seen in our corner. I have one candle burning. 🕯

Yay that you are on break now. You need it! Oh and your new medical services

What a lovely time of year when thoughts turn to HOME. Have a fabulous week.

Wishing you the best with your changes.

Happy Christmas and Blessings of the Season to you and to yours...



  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
