O Holy Night.....

Christmas Eve. It was storming tonight after a hot day. Our french doors were open letting in the delicious breeze from the sea. All the lights were off. Waiting. For the Christ Child to come.

Dd 9, has the Christ Child in arms. Wrapped in a blanket (reminding us of the beautiful story, The Legend of the Poinsettia). Ready to process by advent candlelight, to the crib.

The beautiful, handmade Christ Child blanket.

Dear Boy (4) has the Christ Child from the nativity, wrapped in soft, white tissue. In darkness. Waiting for candlelight and music.

All in darkness. Except for advent candles. And christmas lights. Three stars behind the nativity scene. The Christmas Star, behind the crib. Now waiting for the Christ Child.

The hymns begin, all the beautiful Christmas carols. With only twinkling lights around us.

Wishing everyone a most blessed Christmas. May the Christ Child bestow upon you His most choicest blessings and graces in the Christmas season!

Love to all, Anne.
