We celebrated our Christmas just a bit early this year. Saturday, was a time that we could all get together as a family, so we just opened presents, made the usual Christmas gift wrapping mess, and enjoyed each others company!
I loved hearing my grandchildren read from Luke 2. I loved seeing the looks on the children's faces when they open their gifts. I loved watching my mother open her gifts with enthusiasm!! I loved that the babies loved the wrapping paper and the boxes better than what was inside!! But, what I love more than anything, is the way that it feels when we are all together. We had such a fun night . . . Merry Christmas . . . almost!
Love is like the Polar Star. In a changing world, it is a constant. It is of the very essence of the gospel. It is the security of the home. It is the safeguard of community life. It is a beacon of hope in a world of distress.
