It’s Christmas morning, and much to my surprise I’ve been awake since about 6am. I don’t think that’s happened since I was about 12 years old. But, I slept most of yesterday expecting to have to work Christmas Eve, and then received a Christmas blessing and was canceled. So, I got to go to our Christmas Eve candlelight service with my family, as well as the Boggs family, which was so wonderful. There was something so peaceful about standing in a candlelit church, singing Christmas praises, my sweetheart by my side, and a precious little 2 year old on my hip (Greg’s neice). I just couldn’t keep from smiling. All the people I love gathered in one place. I loved every moment of it. Here’s a peek…
Following the service, my family split a little bit. I went with Greg’s family to dinner, Katie went to visit with her fiance’ and his family for a bit, and Emily went with her boy. But by the end of the night we all gathered back at our house to finish some wrapping, hang out, and then all 3 sisters climbed into one bed for the last Christmas Eve slumber party (seeing as Katie will be a married gal next Christmas!).
So I’ll leave you with a Christmas morning message, and I hope everyone has a wonderful day with family and friends! Please pray for those who cannot be with their families today. I love you all!
