Our little family has been busy with the pleasures of time together. So many activities here at home and out and about. Mostly here however. The kids had an early start on the 24th and caught two sleepy parents off guard and unprepared. the two presents they chose to open were opened in the morning. Normally it is an evening event. We realized that the day long would give more time to enjoy. It is so set that rules of Christmas are never modified. It is a challenging thing for me to be flexible. My husband is teaching me these things at times with some consternation.
Here he is dragging the dog across the floor, the dog was loving it.
We were blessed to get a leg a $48. leg for $21. It was so good.
However I must get it in the freezer for I am the only one who enjoys it.
I may not do this tradition next year.
Steve and I had our evening communion and well into the midnight hours before our hearts and minds were ready. We spoke out all within us. Talked of all and or any ought we had against each other as we admitted our sin and fault to God and each other. This was a great time of healing and restoration in our friendship. It was very cathartic and yet courageously difficult to walk through. When a family is young as in the kids, it is so easy to neglect each others hearts. It is far too easy to leave things unsaid and misunderstood. We were so open and transparent with each other. Our ties strengthened and secured. Our love deeply knit.
Then and only then we were ready to join each other in one spirit and had our time of communion together. We fell asleep sound and slept peacefully.
It was a wonderful Christmas eve.
