During choir practice at my church for the Christmas Eve service this coming Saturday evening, I saw an unusual arrangement on the communion table. The candles were on either side of the cross as usual, but this is what I saw. The candle on the left looked like this
and the candle on the right looked like this. If you have a keen eye and have used the utensils on these candles you know that they are vacuum cleaner attachments. It seems that mice are coming into the church and gnawing on the candle tips so Jesse, who is a high school senior, placed vacuum cleaner attachments over the candles to keep them safe from gnawing teeth. Jesse’s mother is the organist and she is petrified of mice so a S.W.A.T. team was formed consisting of Jesse and his mother’s sister, Aunt Lynn. Aunt Lynn is in charge of getting rid of the mice. I don’t know how she’s going about it, but she’s “on it”. We didn’t see any mice during choir practice! That may be a good sign.
Speaking of signs, are there signs that Jesus is coming around your house? It is almost time.
Have a wonderful Christmas. God is with you.
