Last evening we had a beautiful and peaceful Christmas Eve service at church. Rev. John Boehmer delivered a meaningful sermon about God coming as a baby that we might stop and notice amid our troubling and, at times, trying world. I loved his story about the boy, Mischa, in the orphanage and keeping Jesus warm. I'd love to read it again and again.

We drove home in fresh snow and we do have a White Christmas. I rearranged my creche figures to show the baby in the manger, the way artists think it might have looked.

This morning, Christmas morning, dawned bright and clear, the trees shuddering in the wind and awhile ago, light snow blowing off the workshop roof. Likely pretty cold out there, yet the sky is blue with some puffy white clouds.

If you're travelling today, dress warm and drive safely and have a good day with family or friends. And remember Christ coming as a baby that God might be with us.
