Christmas Eve

I think I love Christmas Eve almost as much as Christmas morning.

We have a candle light service at church every year. We sing just a few Christmas carols and the last song is always Silent Night. It is during that song we light our candles and the entire sanctuary is glowing by candle light.

I have always thought our church was beautiful but when everyone is standing there holding their candles and the light is glowing and spilling from every corner, every year I think the could never be more beautiful than it is right now.

But this year will be extra special to me. This year Hubs and R1 are reading a scripture verse during the service. And they will be one of the candle lighters this year.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas. I hope you spend it with family and friends.

But most of all I hope you remember the real reason we celebrate Christmas. Jesus, our savior, is born.
