Angel


Ward Christmas Party:

As someone read Luke 2, the nursery acted out the nativity. On came Jane, the angel...
Someone reads..."Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields and keeping..." reader stops as Jane interrupts yelling,
"Hi MOM!!!"
I waved quietly from my seat as the audience snickers
"...the night watch over their flock. The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were struck..."
"I'M AN ANGEL"
I nod my head and face turns red. When I say she yells I mean YELLS! The audience laughs and I hear people say under their breath "Ohh she is so cute" and "awhhhw"
..."with great fear. The angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I..."
Jane interrupts again without even knowing it
"MOM, LOOK AT ME! HI MOM!! HI!! WHERE'S CLAIRE?!"
This time the audience is cracking up. And I am getting pats on my back from people behind me. They are saying 'Oh she really IS an angel look at her, she's adorable"
Finally the reader ends the scripture and the curtain is pulled.
"BYE MOM, BYE!!!" Jane screams and waves.
What a cute lil angel...snack.
