This Christmas Eve was very low-key, which I expect will continue into tomorrow. Our neighbors came by with treats and sang “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” from across the porch. Another friend had her son deliver a gift to the porch. We went for a little walk and enjoyed the sunshine. After dinner we “went to church” downstairs using the big TV and YouTube. As usual, the priest gave a beautiful sermon. I appreciated his emphasis on how God is just as present in our home worship as He is in the church, that God uses the priest’s words and prayers no matter where we are. After Mass, we wrapped a couple presents, ate our goodies, and wished each other a Merry Christmas. We are finding that keeping things simple makes for an overall relaxing, enjoyable experience.
