St. Lucia was a Sicilian who was eventually martyred for her love of Christ. She was know for her service to the less fortunate. There are many "legends" and "miracles" attributed to her and that you can probably skip. But her willingness to give of her all for the Savior is a great lesson to remember this time of year. December 13th is set aside as St. Lucia Day but being Elisabeth's birthday, we usually celebrate on the Saturday nearest the 13th.
In the spirit of St. Lucia, we wanted to do something to serve the community today. Our plan was to take Lucy Buns to a local nursing home and give the ladies manicures and play games with the residents.
Unfortunately, we have many sick kids and I was concerned about infecting people who are at risk for complications.
