Elvis is BACK!!!!
We had a great little FHE tonight.
I used part of the "A Christ Centered Christmas" by Emily Freeman.
It was the section about Joseph and serving others.
It asked the question, How did you think Joseph felt when he couldn't get a room for Mary to give birth?
And if you were there at that time, what could you do to help him?
Maybe offer him your room, give pillows or blankets.
Maybe a meal for them?
They all had great suggestions :)
And then it talks about there being people like Joseph in our lives today that could use a little boost a selfless service from us.
It was a great lesson about silently serving others.
And at the end, I brought Elvis out.
Elvis is one of my favorite Christmas traditions.
Instead of a naughty elf, our elf does secret service throughout the month.
Someone does something for another, and leaves Elvis there.
Then that person who received the service, and Elvis, then does something for another!
And it keeps going and going.
It has always helped to bring that special spirit of serving others and Christ like love to our home during the holidays :)
