Merry Christmas to you, your family, and your friends. Christmas is a season of great happiness: a time for fondly remembering the past and hoping for the future. I wish you much peace and love to fill your heart with joy during this wonderful season. Last night, I enjoyed Christmas Eve church service with my cousin and our families. I'm so blessed to be surrounded by so much family.
Singing Christmas Carols at church is always a highlight for me. I also love to see the younger children in bow ties and smocked dresses who eagerly await Christmas morning. Our church offers an array of programming and activities for children, youth, and teens. It means so much to me to watch my daughters grow in their faith.
After church, we enjoyed some Christmas cheer at our neighbor's party. What a perfect way to end the day! Finally, after the girls went to sleep, Santa's elves worked diligently to prepare for Christmas morning.
This morning, my parents are coming to our house to see the girls open their presents. Later we'll go to John's parents' house and to my aunt's house. It will be a whirlwind of family, food, and fun!
