Last night I went to two Christmas Eve services at two different churches. I won't say it was easy. It was not. It was sad and quietly joyful and oh so difficult. But even if I am ignoring the usual trappings of Christmas in my household this year--no tree, no dinner, no decorations, etc--I cannot ignore that the One whose birth we celebrate put into motion the events that purchased my life and ensured that I would one day be reunited with the daughter that I miss so much. For that reason, and for so many other blessings poured out to all of us, I wish everyone a merry Christmas.
