This morning Wagener UMC hosted Breakfast with Santa. We had story-time where the children heard the story of Jesus's birth, and why the manger his was laid in has such special meaning. Then we ate a big breakfast of pancakes and sausage, and for dessert...birthday cake! Yes, we sang Happy Birthday Jesus and got to blow out the candles.
Then, just as everyone was getting sleepy and ready for a nap, who should appear??? The man in the red suit! That's right! Santa made a special trip to Wagener UMC this morning to see all our special children and to speak to each one to learn what they wanted for Christmas. He even brought some gifts for all the girls and boys!
It was such a wonderful and festive time! This Pastor had not quite started to feel the Christmas season until this morning, watching all the joy and excitement on the faces of the many children was all it took!
