Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning....

Oh what a glorious morning! Merry Christmas, everyone!

I have just been for a walk around the lake singing carols at the top of my voice because it seemed to be the perfect thing to do. So I sang. There was no-one around, which was a great blessing. At least, I THINK there was no-one around......

And another thing...I LOVE skype. I saw and chatted to my daughter and our friends in sunny NZ, on their Christmas morning/our Christmas Eve. And then this morning I watched my granddaughter playing with her new toys and listened to her telling me that Rudolph ATE THE CARROT!! And FATHER CHRISTMAS ATE THE MINCE PIE!!!! She apparently informed her parents of this at 4.30am this morning. She was told that Father Christmas was undoubtedly still delivering presents so she had better go back to bed. Hah. Fat chance. So her Daddy investgated, reported that oh yes, he was still busy but sent up a stocking for her to look at.

I think they got about 15 extra minutes in bed.

Oh the excitement!

And so I got to be with my family, scattered around the globe. It is the seeing. The talking. The real life part. Thank God for technology which brings us the opportunity to stay close.

Time for mince pies, I think.

 Much love to you all. May joy and peace colour your day as we celebrate the birth of our Saviour long long ago.....

Kids are so funny at Christmas aren't they? Any other day of the year we have to nearly drag them out of bed, but, by golly on Christmas morning it's 5 a.m. (as was the case with our daughter). It's like they have an internal Christmas alarm clock. She is 10 so this year she had to exercise patience and wait until 8 when we were all gathered to open presents.
Glad you had a wonderful day and was able to skype with your family.
God bless!

Yes, the more I hear about Skype from all my blogging buds, the more I realize that it is the next best thing to being there. So glad that you got your visiting in and your caroling, too!

Caroling sounds fabulous. So does seeing and hearing your family. Have a blessed day.
