Here's the photo that Krasi took of me at work the other day. She actually took two, but general consensus is that this is the better of the two. I had to laugh when I asked another co-worker which was the better one. She said to go with this one, because my smile looked fake in the other one. I told her, "The people who are going to see this photo already know that the smile is fake."
I just found out that I will be going to court tomorrow for my first day of jury duty. Of course, I may or may not get chosen to actually be on a jury. At least I don't have to be at the courthouse until 8:30, so I can sleep a few extra minutes in the morning. And I suppose I should leave my camera at home--I've been carrying it around in my purse since it's so small, just in case the perfect photo op presents itself. I'd hate to get it confiscated at the courthouse door, though.
We had an excellent "large group gathering" last night at our "adjunct facility" at Church of the Apostle. I put large group gathering in quotes because it ended up being just us home folks--we usually have some people from other churches join us, but they were all off doing other things last night. I posted a photo of one of the candles we used over to the right. We all had candles, which made for an intimate, reverent setting while solving the problem of the extremely harsh lighting in the room we use. Matt worked up several Christmas carols for us to sing as a group, and I sang "Mary Did You Know" during the Communion portion of the service, to Matt's accompaniment. He is so talented with the music. I'm not sure if he'd ever really played the song I did before, but I gave him a CD of the arrangement I use about 3 days before the service, and he was able to almost exactly duplicate it with no sheet music or anything. We did the evening office, and Alan gave a teaching about God's faithfulness to bring to pass that which He promises. It was a very good time.
Afterward, of course, we all went out to eat, to I Ching, a fast-food Chinese place that manages to give the air of a fancier place without the fancier prices. The food was delicious, too. Then Brian, Matt, and I went to Barnes & Noble and looked around for a while. I found a nice gift for the person whose name I drew at church for our Christmas gift exchange.
Hi, I'm Debi. Once in a while I have a thought and I like to write it down before it goes away. This is where I write it.
