One of my favorite television shows of all time is the A-Team! It’s a show that takes me back to my childhood.
In every episode there is a moment at the end where Hannibal smiles, chomps on his cigar, and says, “I love it when a plan comes together.”
That’s what I think every year after the children’s Christmas program at Church!
Practices can tend to be on the chaotic side with all ages from preschoolers to high schoolers represented. Not everyone can make it to every practice and you wonder if it will ever all come together.
The people who plan and organize it every year have my utmost respect. I’m not sure I’d have the patience it takes to organize it all.
As a parent watching practices it used to really stress me out… but not any more. I’ve come to realize that everything always works out in the end.
This morning I actually enjoyed the commotion and energy at Church as the final preparations were underway for the children’s Christmas program.
There were grade school kids working on a Nativity play, the Praise Band practicing, the bell choir setting up, and my oldest warming up on her clarinet in the corner to play part of the prelude! It was awesome to see so many people getting involved.
When it came time for the program everything went off without a hitch (like always). It was perfect!
It was just what I needed to put a smile on my face and get me into the Christmas spirit!
Have you noticed the same thing at your Church?
