Gwynly and I remarked yesterday how it hasn't really felt like Christmas to us yet. Even though our tree was cut, up, and decorated the day after Thanksgiving with the the wrapped presents beneath it just the way The Fashion Queen likes, without her here, things didn't feel complete.
But they will when she arrives.
Tonight, we'll attend our Christmas Eve candlelight service and reflect on the real meaning of Christmas. We'll open our stockings when we get home from church. Tomorrow, we'll watch the others' reactions to our carefully selected gifts. And we'll enjoy being together.
I wish you and your family a blessed celebration of Christmas.

I've seen several great Christmas videos this season. Since Gwynly and I have been Mac people for two decades, this one of the North Point Community Church iBand's rendition of three Christmas songs was among my favorites..
