Hello Out There! A quick post before I call it a night. Today is the 4th Sunday of Advent.
We had all of our children, two sons and one daughter, their spouses, two daughter-in-laws
and one son-in-law, and all ten of our grandchildren with us this weekend! What a huge
blessing to be able to spend time all together! We had so much fun, we laughed and played
a crazy white elephant sock exchange game, 18 of us in our living room. We've lived in
this house, our home, for over 24 years. The guys barbecued and the bigger kids played
outside. We had all kinds of snack foods and the little ones played inside. I bought one of
those children's Nativity Scenes (Ages 1-5), and they all loved it. I placed it on their little table
in the living room and someone was always moving the figures the way they thought
looked best! I took a ton of pictures and got lots of hugs and kisses!
We went to the 6:00 p.m. Mass this evening and it was wonderful, the Cathedral was packed!
Jim and I have to get up really early because tomorrow is our day to spend an hour at
the Adoration Chapel so I will have to close for now.
The evening prayer in my Magnificat is:
Jesus Christ has opened the gates of heaven:
come, let us adore him!
I pray that you have a wonderful week, and that we all slow down and enjoy this
beautiful time of year.
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!
Bye for now,
