You’re never too old to be young (don’t you just love an oxymoron?) A couple of sisters and I thought the sisterhood could use a boost of unifying energy. A Columbus Day/Oktoberfest/ pre-All Saints’ Day get-together seemed appropriate. We searched the attic and visited a local bargain store for fall decorations. I usually bypass the cute stuff and look for quietly elegant. This time, I couldn’t resist smiling scarecrows, paper tablecloths, and glitter-covered pumpkins. Our selections led to a lighthearted, spirit-lifting celebration for a sisterhood ranging in age from 25 to 85. Lesson learned: when God spins the direction dial to his liking, the result is far better than when I take control.
