Christmas is here!

O come, let us adore him.
We enjoyed a beautiful Christmas Eve service last night.
The regular sanctuary was so crowded that there was no room
for us to sit, not even in the balcony.
I thought of Mary and Joseph wandering around
looking for a place to stay.
So we went to the overflow fellowship hall.
When we walked in it was empty but the service was
being broadcast on a huge screen.
The lights were out except for the glow from two huge
Christmas trees on either side of the room.
Pretty soon we heard others walking in the room.
Then ushers realized the fellowship hall was filling up.
Lights went on. Candles were lit.
I can't explain the feeling but it was beautiful.
It was Christmas.
Friends and strangers alike gathering to listen
and watch as the story of Jesus's birth was told
by young children dressed
as the holy family, shepherds, and angels.
Songs were sung. Bible verses read.
We were reminded of the real reason for the season.

Hope you and yours have a very

Merry Christmas.
