Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas. This is Leann.

Christmas Eve is my favorite time of the Christmas season. The excitement and joy of the season filling the air. Since my kids were in middle school, we gone to our church's Christmas Eve service. They usually pick a family to read the Christmas story and our pastor promises a 10 minutes sermon. He times himself and always makes it. At the end of the service, the teens come into the service with candles as we sign Joy to the World.

I remember one Christmas in particular when both my children and husband all stood there singing. My heart filled with gratitude to our Savior for the wonderful blessings He's poured into my life.

What wonderful memories do you have of Christmas Eve?

MERRY CHRISTMAS to ALL the authors and commenters on Craftie Ladies of Suspense.

Our weather turned into a snow-in. So no traveling for us. But it's gorgeous!

Who would believe, Dallas would have a white Christmas? It's beautiful, but now we have to 'figure out' how to drive in it.
