Here I am, minutes from walking out the door to the church where I'll be decorating my table for the Ladies' Christmas Breakfast. I am always really excited about it, but what I have come to realize about tablescapes and bulletin boards is that
1) I love to plan them but
2) don't particularly enjoy executing them and
3) battle sinful comparison with women whose natural talent is decorating.
I think in themes and in details (big picture, minutiae) but still underestimate time. I run out of time for the minutiae.
Which brings me to the theme of this year's table of mine. Time. Watch. Clocks.
I need your help, if you have time (get it?) with the last details of my table: the verses. I need 8 verses that have "watch" as a keyword, particularly in relation to watching for the Messiah, being watchful, shepherds watching, etc. That's my first choice (8 with "watch") but "time" is an alternative. I want them to be a mix of Christ's first coming AND his second.
These will be typed on placecards, attached with burgundy ribbon to gold napkins which are "tied" with a gold or silver (25-cent or free) watch. (Thanks again, Krista, for the freebie. It looks perfect.)
Now I'm out of here. Pray I don't break dishes. For a while I thought my theme would be "Only Seven." I was coming up with 7 teacups, 7 forks, 7 white napkins for Sarah's table . (Hers is simple , cute, and thoughtful one with bright red and darling penguins. I want to be like her when I grow up.)
So, will you "watch" for verses and leave them in my comment box? I'll check back later today on this ZMZ station. Thanks!
