Christmas Eve Day

News of young Noah needing prayer -

he has collapsed suddenly...

I learned of Noah and his family through Mat. Anna;

this family has been through a lot of struggles lately;

will be good to cover them with prayer.

My sister Rebecca and my brother-in-law Mark

made it home on time yesterday!

What a blessing, considering the mess

London airports have been in.

It is good to have them home.

Liturgically I will be on the New Calendar
until I return to Ottawa
God willing January 5th;
with Christmas Eve being January 6th.
*
Tonight will be my Christmas Matins and Liturgy
at the church I was chrismated in;
it is always good to worship with them again.
*
May Christ be born again in our hearts
as we approach His manger
and His humble birth.

So glad to hear your travellers made it through for Christmas! Have a very happy family Christmas on the new calendar and another back in your Ottawa parish on the old one! I love having my tree up for so long ;) Thinking of so many families for whom the 'expected' fun and jollity of Christmas makes their very different situation harder to bear - may they be surrounded by the love of Him who truly suffers with us.
