As you move about your holiday activity both hurried and hushed, may you be aware of Christ around you.
As you hold the monumental and minute in your heart like Mary, may you know Christ in you.
As you open unexpected gifts great and small, may you know Christ for you.
The Christmas spirit is that hope which tenaciously clings to the hearts of the faithful
and announces in the face of any Herod the world can produce
and all the inn doors slammed in our faces and all the dark nights of our souls
that with God all things are possible, that even now unto us a Child is born!

It seems my views of Christmas change as I age. Used to look forward to Santa and all the gifts. Now I know the real gift was Jesus and His willingness to leave the splendor of Heaven.
I love giving & getting gifts but that is not my priority. It is spending time with family & friends. I treasure all the time I have with my dad.
My church family had a candle light communion. Each family goes up, takes communion and hugs each other. The thing is no one goes up alone. Everyone is family. If you have no one another family will take you with them! We are all family!!
I pray you had a blessed Christmas!
What a beautiful picture of family and togetherness within your community, Beth. Thanks for sharing that. Much love and Merry Christmas!
