Good Monday morning, my Christmas friends!

After the mind-numbing clothes shopping yesterday afternoon, we went to see The Journey at...no kidding...the largest church I've ever seen. Their main campus is as large as Bellville. As you enter the church, the bookstore is on the left, followed by the gift shop, then the coffee shop...it's amazing! We were taken into the concert arena (not the sanctuary. I never saw that.) and treated to live music and singing with production value that would make some Hollywood-type envious. They had TV cameras at different angle, some on arching booms, professional lighting,...Lordy, Lordy! I can't imaging what it costs just to maintain the building and grounds. I come a super small church. Our average attendance is 30.

Anyways, The Journey was awesome! It was cold and wet, which made it seem all the more realistic. There is a large pond near the church, and they ferried you across the "River Jordan", and you were conducted on a tour of the surprises that Mary and Joseph had in store for them, then by a Roman centurion to Bethlehem to register for the census. It was too long, and too cool to go into all the way, but I was super impressed!

Back to reality today. Jacob want another guitar for Christmas. And, of course, not the affordable one. I gotta have a talk with him this afternoon.

I hope y'all have a great day!
Sounds like an amazing experience, Brad!
Glad you had a great time!!

Thank you! The word has gone out for employees to bring in decorations. So far the only ornament besides the lights is a pig with wings. It'll be fun to see the decorations "blossom" little by little. I'll have to see what leftovers I have from home to contribute.

I am still not feeling great, so I am going to relax a bit and then turn in.

Sleep well, sweet dreams!!

Goodnight!!

Good Monday morning everyone! Here we go with another week. I am going to start my exam revision so I am getting ready to go to the campus library to take some books. Oh, I will pop to the gym too. I haven't done any workout since the induction session so it's time to start.

Wishing everyone a nice day!
Good luck with your exam revision, Victoria!! Have a MERRY day!!!
