Scenic Sunday and Shadow Shot Sunday

"For there is born to you this day, in the city of David a Savior who is Christ the Lord," Luke 2:11

For Scenic Sunday today, I’ll share with you a local church’s annual Living Nativity.  This takes place in the evening on Friday and Saturday night from 6:00pm. – 9:00pm.

We were first greeted with a warm ” Merry Christmas!” and then directed to the starting point.  A reader of the Gospel began with the first of”  The Christmas Story”.

One of the stations of " the Christmas Story" readers

One of the many volunteers of   Middlebush Reformed church ( the church with the Red door) , escort us to each station  by walking through a path of Luminaries to hear a passage read from ” the Christmas Story”.

Our group listens. There's me with the pink scarf!

The Luminaries light the way.

From the moment you begin you journey of the Christmas Story, these Luminaries light the path that you walk to hear the passages read to you. This place is very beautiful in the darkness of the night.

I just read on their website that this is their 8th or 11th year, and I  sure that we have visited this Living Nativity all the years except one.

Shadow Shot Sunday and Scenic Sunday


For Shadow Shot Sunday, one day while taking a stroll after a delicious brunch at Kingston”s Main Street Bakery and coffee shop, I happened to see this black cat.   He was taking a stroll, too!  See below for Scenic Sunday.

Show shot Sunday: black cat struts!

Here’s my photo for Scenic Sunday!  The tree looks pretty with little pillows of snow and leaves.

Fall leaves still on tree and snow.

Revisiting a recent Sunday in October, we had an unusual snowstorm that caused many trees in the Northeast to collapse from the combination of the weight of the leaves still on the trees and the heavy snow.  This caused extreme power outages in many towns and surrounding states.  People resorted to using candlelight at night and flashlights at night.  At our house, the power was out for 3 days and nights.

I recalled with humor, the children’s book, ” Twas the Night Before Christmas” and the true meaning of one of the lines.   The line that came to mind was, ” And I in my kerchief and mama in her cap had just settled down for a long winter’s nap when my husband and I went to bed with winter hats on because of the lack of heat in the house.

A word on Comments:
