So as part of our purposing to keep focused on Christ's birth, we celebrated on the night of Christmas Eve through fellowship with other believers. We gathered at the home of the Hanrions (thanks!) and worshipped by sharing in communion then gathered round a campfire to share in the reading from scripture of the very first Christmas... the very birthday of the Christ Child. Matthew read so beautifully giving opportunities for the children to fill in details from the story. It was a very special time together and such a sweet encouragement to hear those little voices of our children speaking truth from God's word, evidence that as parents we are doing it right (at least some of the time), we are growing our children up in the admonition of the Lord! It truly was the perfect way to spend Christmas eve.
