A Beautiful Christmas Concert

I was able to attend a Christmas concert last night here in Abbotsford.  I didn't know much about it beforehand, only that a local family was performing and that they had been around for several years.  What an absolute delight to listen to this extremely talented family - the Sweeney's.  

The concert was held at Bakerview Church which was ideal as the accoustics were wonderful.  There was a love-offering which the family donated to charity.  But the concert itself - well lets just say that they could have held their own on any stage, I'm sure.  You can find out more about the Sweeney Family on their blog, and in fact, I believe you might find an audio clip on a past post there too.  

Thank you, Sweeney family, for blessing my ears and warming my heart this season.

A Splendid Day in White Rock BC

Take this busy holiday month with all the hustle and bustle and add in the gazillion little things which come along atop of the already hectic happy chaos... but I was blessed to be able to insert one beautiful day in the midst.  I am so grateful I took my camera along and captured some moments in White Rock B.C.  which I can share with you here.

Can you figure out how this place got it's name?  (sorry for the crooked horizon)

Oh MY!  I thought I'd post this photo last just to torture.  If you run off in search of food this would be silly to put first.  

I do have more photos but am saving them for another time.  It was truly a blissful relaxing respite.  

Thanks for stopping in - hope whoever you are, wherever you are you'll take a rest time too!
