November… What!

So it is November… I’m speechless… 2016 is slowly creeping up on us. I am almost positive that time is speeding up; in my eyes every year goes by quicker than the last.

We are almost in the 2nd week of November (if you haven’t noticed). This is when the Americans will celebrate their Thanksgiving, and the Canadians start setting up their Christmas trees and playing those “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas” songs; though I’m sure after last year’s winter, less Canadians will be dreaming/wishing for a white Christmas. But, to get back on track, I’ve very much enjoyed my November so far.

EPU, UPC, youth convention of France,

the lead praise singers

Last weekend France held its 32nd annual youth convention, this year approximately 800-900 people attended. Praise the Lord! I got to speak, fellowship, and worship with some of my friends from around France. God moved in those services, and everyone left encouraged in some way.

Yesterday we celebrated Timo’s (my baby brother) 10th birthday. Though it wasn’t his official birthday we celebrated it with friends. We went to Stoony Park which is like a bouncy castle place. The age limit was 12 but hey I’m short enough to pass as a 12 year old. We all had a blast while surrounded by 3-5 year olds. But you know what they say “Once a child, always a child,” or maybe that’s just me.

So as we inch closer to the new year remember to enjoy the here and now.

    Hey! I know you!
    We’ve been working on the Christmas play lately. (Trisha and I are directing it this year.) It’s not the same without you guys.
    We miss you all.
    Happy November, Sophia Maria.

      Oh goodness… haven’t heard that nickname in a while! I bet it’s going to be a great play, we’re going to miss being in it.
