Christmas Eve

The fridge and pantry are full. Beds are made. Bathrooms cleaned. The fridge and pantry are full. The Bûche de Noel is assembled. Just a few things left to do before the celebrating begins. The children arrive late tonight. 

Church this evening and time to reflect on the Babe, God's greatest gift to mankind. 

Hark! the herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King"
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled

Joyful all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With the angelic host proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem

Hark! the herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King"


  1. You are ready for the celebrations to begin... Enjoy the arriving family and have a wonderful Christmas.

  9. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas with the family, Lorrie. I enjoyed reading your big box story too and have told it to several people. You should send it to Canada Post and ask for a response (sometime - when you have the time...) Good luck with your move and all the best for the New Year!


Thank you for your comment. I read and value each one, cherishing the connections we can make although far apart. Usually, I visit your blog in return, although if you ask a question I try to contact you directly.
