After all the gifts have been opened and the day is drawing to a close, Christmas Eve always finds me quiet and still - awed by the beauty and majesty of the power of God to transform us by the so common happening of the birth of a little baby boy named Jesus.
What gifts can we give each other that have more meaning than a prayer whispered in love and hope - that God will yet bless His people? Those are the sweet, simple prayers from the heart that I pray over my children and grandchildren this Christmas. And also over you...
"May the Lord bless you and keep you;
May He make His face to shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace."
