Harvesting Joy in 2012
Date: Saturday, November 24, 2012
Location: Lake Jackson, Texas
(Note: Although I wrote this in late November of 2012, I did not post it for another eight months. Please pardon my delay!)
I recently went nearly 10 months without posting a single post on our family blog. Then, I posted 16 different posts to try to make up for the lack of communication. Two weeks later, I began planning my next batch of blog posts. After all, there are only two months left in the calendar year and my brain is already flowing with a number of ideas for posts. Of course, the ideas come easily when there is so much going on at this time of the year. Harvest activities, festivals and “hallow’s eve” kick off the beginning of the holiday season. Just as soon as I’ve sorted through the Halloween candy, it’s already time to think about Thanksgiving plans and Christmas. Throw in a national election and a pregnancy that is coming into the final 10 week countdown and I become a very busy momma.
So, feel free to read about our fall activities and updates. October and November have been fun months of busy activities and celebrations that I am looking forward to sharing with you.
1) Grandparent’s Day Relived (Family News)
Although Grandparent’s Day was officially listed on U.S. calendars in the month of September, Brazosport Christian School (BCS) has traditionally prepared a special celebration in their honor during the month of October.
2) ACSI accreditation (Ministry)
Under the supervision of Stephen Meier, BCS recently accomplished something that no other Christian school in the United States has yet to achieve.
3) Hallelujah on Halloween (TCK Views)
A lot of churches around here have taken to celebrating “Hallelujah” night in the place of Halloween.
4) Monster Dash into the wind (Family News)
This was the second year that the Meier family participated in this Halloween-themed 5k race with special races for kids, a costume contest and a sudden dip in temperature.
5) Weather or not in Lake Jackson (TCK Views)
I grew up without any seasonal changes, so I’m not a person to be disappointed by snowless winters and a lack of a real spring blossoming or fall foliage.
6) A Homecoming Update & Prize Winners (Ministry)
At Brazosport Christian School (BCS), their annual homecoming event was supercharged this year by a fund-raising event set to deliver prizes to a few lucky participants who took the time to donate money to the school.
We hope you are doing well as the year draws to an end and the holiday season begins. Feel free to e-mail, call, Skpye or post us. May God grant each of you peace of mind regardless of how you feel about the national election results this year. God is in control of everything; even the United States electoral process.
