Silent Night, Holy Night

It's Christmas Eve...in fact, as I write this, it's almost Christmas Day! Spent much of the day getting ready for tomorrow and visiting some friends. I always put out luminarias every Christmas Eve for the past 10 years here that I can recall. We've got good weather conditions for this kind of thing; usually no snow (or very little), no rain and light winds. It's just a bit chilly setting these little paper bags out and lighting them. I only wish we didn't have that street light in front of our house as it makes the effect of these glowing lights less dramatic. All is as well as it can be; Chris and Raine's car was found ('stolen' two days ago). Yay! My sister Carol in Florida called (I thought she dropped off the face of the earth as I hadn't heard from her in two years!). My two older brothers called. I know my two younger brothers will be cooking up some mighty fine meals tomorrow; Tim goes all out and plans a menu with a theme. I don't know what this year's theme is though. I'll let you know when I find out. I keep thinking someday I should plan on being there for one of those elaborate meals he makes. Got a nice email from my cousin David in Illinois. I am worried about my younger sister in Hilo, but the lesson here is to have faith and trust that all will be well. I've enjoyed reading all the Christmas cards and letters as they've come in over the past few weeks. I keep remembering ones that I forgot to send out...guess I'll have to tend to those on the 26th! Two minutes to go before it's tomorrow! Have a Merry Christmas everyone! Remember to keep on learning to live in the moment. Each day is a gift and we should use it wisely!

Sounds like a hectic (but fun) Christmas. I too steadfastly refuse to leave the "Christ" out of Christmas! Got a kick out of seeing my ornament in the previous post - glad you could use it! And thanks for visiting my blog too.
