This photo is my father with his great grandchildren. Dad loved little ones and they loved him. Christmas eve has always been special around our house. We attend a Christmas Eve worship service at church, come home and share a meal, then read the Christmas story found in the second chapter of Luke. Finally, we open the presents. My wife and daughter always managed to find special sleepwear for the grand crew and that continued right up through last year.
I mentioned earlier that part of our Christmas celebration includes reading the Biblical account of the birth of Christ. We believe it is important to take time to focus on the true reason that we celebrate Christmas. We celebrate life, faith, love, and hope. And hope has a name.
