A Blessed Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is a bittersweet day for me.  My grandpa was born on Christmas Eve, 1891.  My mom passed on Christmas Eve, 2006.  And on that Christmas Eve, 2006, we found out that DD was pregnant with T#3.  My eyes tear up even now when I think how gracious our God was to send me a precious blessing and a reason for hope on that sad day … and that always reminds me of the most precious blessing and reason for hope that He sent us 2000 years ago.

May that most precious blessing and reason for hope always be the focus of our Christmas. Red heart


  1. I love how God works in our lives. Even when there is sadness there can be joy.
    Merry Christmas. Enjoy the time with your family and your grandchildren.

  2. Hi there, Blessings from our home to yours. I'm reminded that the Lord turns our mourning into dancing. We lost my fil on Dec. 23, 1991 and I understand the sadness. I've been so blessed by you dear one and thankful for getting to know you; I look forward to more adventures in the coming year.
    Merry Christmas, Noreen

  3. Gracious, indeed! I'm not looking forward to the Christmas without either one of my parents. My mom was born on Christmas Day.

  4. Blessings abundant to you and yours this Christmas!

  5. It's always sad to lose a loved one but when it happens on a holiday it's that much worse. We lost my grandmother Thanksgiving weekend in 2000. How wonderful to receive the news of a little one that year.


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
