Christmas Eve

Thursday, December 24, 2009

I'm working today and there is a huge problem. I can't fix it, but I am helping with what I know. It's not how I planned today to go at all. Hardly anyone is working today, too. So....I don't know how much longer I will need to be on, but after today I won't be back to work until Jan. 4.

It's warmer out today and I'm going to take the dogs for a walk very soon..we ALL need one. Then off to my in laws for Christmas Eve dinner...I'm bringing shrimp and cocktail sauce. We are having fish and pasta for dinner. YUM! My mother is bringing a fresh fruit salad and that's what I'm going to have for dessert.

Later we are going to church. My husband and I are doing the candle lighting...I will be reading and he will be lighting. Reading to the congregation is scarey to me...but if Sparkguy can do what he's done, I can certainly do this!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of my Spark friends!! Even those who are not my Spark friends!! I hope you all can relax a little and share your time with family and friends like we will be doing. emoticon emoticon

    I've done the reading while my children have done the candle lighting. I think if they hadn't been there, I would have been nervous too. But because of their presence, I forgot about being nervous, and worried more about them lighting the Church on fire (or the wrong colored candle).

    It's a meaningful activity. I hope you are comforted by the words you will be reading. I will likely be hearing the very same ones, only read by someone else.

    Isn't Christmas wonderful? We will be in two totally different places, in different countries, surrounded by different people, but feeling the same Spirit.

    Hope, Peace, Love, Joy - may they all bless you and yours this Christmas Season.
