We held lit candles and sang O Holy Light at our church’s Christmas Eve service. Justin slept on my lap.
Just a short while later, he sleepily asked about taking his pills. Not tonight, baby, not tonight.
Justin spent today feeling well for a change. It was, perhaps, the best gift I could give.
Merry Christmas and may Christ, our blessed hope, be magnified.
The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. Isaiah 9:2,6-7a
