Reflections On Christmas Eve

Last night's reflections on Christmas Eve
There is something so amazing and magical about Christmas Eve.  I love to sit in the quiet with the lights down low, a warm cuppa in my hand and soft music playing.  Tonight I am remembering years past.  This was our quiet services over, presents wrapped and ready, the aroma of cookies and pies filling the house.  And the children all tucked in their beds anticipating daylight and hoping to see under the tree what they had been wishing for.  Joel would be enjoying a piece of pumpkin pie with his own cuppa for a few quiet moments before the busyness of the season caught up to him and sleep began its task to erase his weariness. 

We still have the tradition of a quiet night after services end, pumpkin pie, and time together relaxing before we climb in under warm covers to sleep away the tiredness.  Christmas morning still brings a special joy even when children no longer join us to discover what is under the tree.  Good memories we hold close to our hearts.

It is cold here tonight in our corner of the world.  Wind chills have been in the -30's for a couple of evenings, but we are heading into a warm spell tomorrow.  The quilt feels good over my legs as I ponder life with the baby in the with the love of my life.....our family.....the past, present, and future that God holds in His hands.  I am so grateful.  So very grateful Love came down.  So grateful for the blessings of family and friends like you who visit my cyber home.  Wishing you all a blessed Christmas filled to overflowing with the love of friends.
