Sounds and Smells and More, Much More
In a few minutes I will head out to pick up the turkey, and a prime rib roast for Boxing Day, and then after we tidy up a bit, we will prepare some of the foods we will eat over the next two days with family, the squash, rosemary mashed potatoes, . . . and the Christmas Pudding. Can't forget that, . . . with caramel sauce.
This evening, we will travel over to Strathroy, Ontario about 25 minutes away, and take my wife's mother to mass at her Church. The new quilted stockings we made will be hung tonight for our adult children, when they arrive.
We will play Christmas music on the stereo, as we have done many days lately, and maybe even watch a Christmas movie on the TV, if there is time.
But above all, we will be thinking of the Reason for the Season, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, whose birth we are celebrating.
As we join with our children, and their loved ones, and my mother in law, and then my sister and her family, we will be with those we hold most dear on this earth, sharing the love that comes to us from the source of all love, Our God.
So, at this time, I want to wish all of you who drop in to my blog a very Merry Christmas. I hope that you will be with friends and family for Christmas, and this will be the most wonderful Christmas of all.
Merry Christmas to All. May God Bless You and Your Family.
