Why on earth do they say break a leg in the theatre, who knows but today was the day Timothy had the staring role in the Church nativity.
One of the ladies of the Church is a professional author and kindly wrote the script for the nativity and so very thoughtfully asked Timothy to play baby Jesus and I Mary which honestly really was such an honor to be asked.
It was special to have Timothy play baby Jesus as this is his first Christmas and when I was a little girl I played the role of Mary.
The nativity was such good fun and included video and live performance. Thankfully we only had a few lines and the words had been put onto a TV screen which was a relief because having a baby who’s a speedy crawler I have little time for learning words.
The children in the nativity did so well and all really seemed to enjoy themselves.
At the service today we took a special monetary offering for the neonatal unit which Timothy was rushed into soon after his birth.
With thanks to the neonatal unit we are celebrating Timothy’s first Christmas and in January his first birthday.
