This has been a memorable Christmas Day in a very positive way.
It was celebrated with extended family, with more than enough food, singing and lots of laughter.
I left everyone for an hour this afternoon to officiate at a wedding. Only the couple and I knew it was going to happen until an hour before the service when the bride and groom told their parents and siblings who were all with them.
The simplicity and sincerity of the words they chose to make their commitment to each other, carried a powerful message to all of us there of the importance of family and the gift of love.
Today I’m grateful for celebrations of family and love.
