Christ our Savior is Born


 

Silent night, holy night
All is calm and all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from Heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing halleluia
Christ the savior is born
Christ our savior is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God
Love's pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus Lord at thy birth
Jesus Lord at thy birth

Halleluia!
Halleluia!
Halleluia!

Christ the Savior is born



Merry Christmas, My Friends.


Week-end Reward

I worked long, long hours last week and had several evening activities.  By the time Saturday came along I was pretty worn out.  I had piles of laundry and a lot of other things I needed to do at home.  I was up early and accomplished some of those tasks but I dropped it because I was invited to join my daughter and granddaughters for a trip to the library for story time.






The little girls are so precious to me.  I realize how very, very blessed I am to have them close by.  To be able to be a part of their daily lives is something many grandparents do not get.  Now that I have these little ones, I realize what we were unable to give our own children and their grandmas... time...lots of time together.  That makes me sad but it also makes me cautiously guard what I've been given.  I never want to put housecleaning or any other tasks before that precious time.
