Christmas Eve Greetings

Here it is, Christmas Eve, and when I get up from this computer, I must begin the long labor of setting up our Christmas tree. Hours later, when I’ve finally finished, and sit back to drink my iced tea and listen to a little more Christmas music, my wife will take the duck out of the oven and we’ll have Christmas dinner.

Hey, as long as you’re here, have a seat and talk to me while I grapple with these ornaments and warn off the cats.

We have shut the door against the world today: no one allowed in but family, friends, and angels. And memories. People and places we have loved. The people have moved on to glory; the world has swallowed up the places. But there is a place the world can’t swallow up, and that is where the people are now.

May the Holy Spirit be with you all this Christmas Eve.

Lee and Pat

  1. Merry Christmas, Lee! I hope you have a wonderful time 😀

    Were earth a thousand times as fair
    Beset with gold and jewels rare;
    It yet were far too poor to be
    A narrow cradle,
    Lord, for thee. — Martin Luther
