Postponed until next year!
I’m sorry to say that we will not be doing the lights this year.
My Mom was in and out of the hospital during September and October. It takes most of October and November to get everything set up and ready to go. There just wasn’t any way for me to spend the time I wanted to with my Mom and still put up the lights. Mom loved the lights but it quickly became apparent that she wasn’t going to be able to see them this year. She passed away on November 14th.
Then less than a week from my mom’s funeral my wife’s mother died very suddenly of a heart attack on the 24th. My mother-in-law also loved Christmas lights very much and gave us the wireframe Nativity that we currently use. Needless to say we are very grief stricken but we will be back next year bigger and better. I’ll just have to put up enough lights so our Moms can see them from Heaven next year.
Our favorite scripture verse is Jeremiah 29:11 and we are clinging to that more than ever right now.
The main reason we do the display is to tell the real story of Christmas. So let’s be reminded that Christmas is really about keeping Christ in the center of our lives.
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and get to see some of the other animated displays in the area.
