The Wait Is Over



Have a Merry (almost) Christmas! ^_____^ v


WHY I HEART CHRISTMAS:


1. Family Gathering at Tambunan. (There are 33 people in Grandma's house this year. Everyone's home for Christmas!)
2. Gift Exchange (Always the highlight of Christmas morning!)
3. Barbecue (eat!eat!eat!eat!)
4. Party All Night Long (nobody sleeps before at least 1am, even the kids)
5. click! snap* click! pictures (of cute poses, candid moments and wasted people he he he)
6. Christmas Mass :)
7. Movie date with little cousins. (this year, it will be a Thai horror movie, but they didn't know! ~evil laugh~)
8. Sing along to Jingle Bell Rock (my favorite Christmas tune!)
9. Because it's almost impossible to be sad on Christmas
10. Everything (everyone) is red, green, happy, laughing and glowing.
******************************************************

Lord, in this holy season of prayer and song and laughter, we praise you for the great wonders you have sent us: for shining star and angel's song, for infant's cry in lowly manger. We praise you for the Word made flesh in a little Child. We behold his glory, and are bathed in its radiance.

Be with us as we sing the ironies of Christmas, the incomprehensible comprehended, the poetry made hard fact, the helpless Babe who cracks the world asunder. We kneel before you shepherds, innkeepers, wisemen. Help us to rise bigger than we are. 

Amen.
