So much life has taken place in this house in the past two days. We’ve been playing baking/wrapping/shopping/making/caroling catch up. But it hasn’t felt stressful or overwhelming at all–It has naturally moved from stage lights to happy dancing and singing, trailing throughout the house. I’ve felt so blessed to feel the spirit of Christmas growing more intently in our home these past days as I’ve watched Johanna play Mary tonight and swaddle her baby Jesus so tenderly in acting out the family nativity. As we’ve sung Silent Night gathered together around the glowing Christmas tree and seeing my girls feel what I feel. And watching my children so excited to do and make special things for each other. These truly are magical days–days of glad tidings of great joy.
I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas and I hope you create wonderful memories with those that are dearest to you.
