Last night I sat in the sanctuary of our church wondering what I missed. There was a birthday party for Jesus at KB’s school and I honestly had NO idea what that meant; apparently it is a big deal.
Taffeta, sweater vests, bowties. . . and that was just the 3-5 year olds.
I sat on the back row in jeans and a rumpled v-neck. My clothes conscious KB was wearing the same knit dress, dirty tights, and boots she wore to school. Oh my.
The Head of School welcomed us to the second concert of the KDS Concert Series and I didn’t know if I wanted to cry or scream. Did something go home that I missed completely? It seemed I was the ONLY person who didn’t get the memo. I gotta find that memo!!
KB rocked the stage. She is such a beautiful delight and she did such a good job. I’m a thankful mommy. She also held the hand of the boy beside her between every song; Chris is her “very best friend who loves” her. (This is where my friend Monica and my mother are both thinking that she is a chip off the old block!! I agree. I AM a beautiful delight. *wink*)
There was a kindergartner up there in a tux.
One girl’s bow was as big as her brain. (wonder if she is Southern)
It is over now. I am letting it go.
The bottom line is that I watched 50ish children sing about the Savior being born! They quoted God’s Word! It was one of my favorite things I have done this season. It was worshipful. Wonderful. Wow!
My heart grew three sizes last night.
Happy Birthday, Jesus.
