Christmas Eve

We’d planned church this morning, and before going, decided to let Sio open one of her Christmas gifts. There was a method to our madness. Beck and I picked her up her own Bible, including getting her name embossed on the cover, and figured that our church’s Christmas Eve service was the place to break it in. She was thrilled, and I believe she’ll find a lot of good guidance from it.

Our service this morning was full — full of folks and full of functions. We had a baptism, singing of carols, and took the Lord’s Supper. I can’t remember the last time I’d been in a service where the Lord’s Supper was offered…. I know it’s been a long time. It was a terrific service, very uplifting and worthy of the season.

We’ve spent the rest of the day preparing for Morgan’s brood to arrive a little later tonight, and getting the eats ready for the Day family Christmas, which we’ll be hosting tomorrow night. That’s always a good time, and I’m sure tomorrow will be no exception!
