It was only about 8 in the morning but Shelly, our activity director was hard at work.
She was cutting out new branches to replace the old ones which she had noticed were faded.
Amidst teasing about the shade of green she was using, and whether or not to put on glitter, I found that she had bribery in mind. She was “doing something nice for me,” knowing that she needed my help with a different project.
I assured her that I would have helped her with her task without any bribery (and I am sure she would have helped me without any ulterior motive either).
All that being said, the two of us worked together to get the new branches ready for the felt tree, where we would be putting them during our annual Jesse Tree service at Bible study.
This little service, commemorating many key parts of salvation history, is really quite nice. In fact, we have decided to use it for our Wednesday evening community discussion night.
