Ah! Christmas Eve.

The house is decorated and our son is home.  It's cold outside, and we're warm inside.  This is a moment to pause to appreciate the lovely holiday.  It's a time to think about each far-away family who sent us a card.  A time to bake a last batch of cookies, to wrap a couple last-minute gifts.   Later today we'll attend a beautiful Christmas Eve service, look around at the adorable little excited children in attendance, spend a little time thinking about Emmanuel, God with us, and light a candle.

For many of my bloggy friends, it's already Christmas Day, but it's Christmas Eve here in Texas.

Best wishes for a beautiful, beautiful holiday season, and a prosperous and loving new year.
