The reason.

December 25, 2010

I have never been more excited for Christmas than I am this year. Last year was rough for me, and needless to say, it kind of brought down the christmas cheer. But, this year, my heart is so full. Tonight I was able to enjoy our traditional Englert dinner of my mother's homemade lasagna before jetting off to church with my family. After church I went over to Camila's parents house to celebrate a traditional Columbian Christmas. The entire night centered around one main idea: being together. There was never a selfish though, never a greedy-gift grabbing thought. The night was about togetherness and that feeling is only going to continue. Tomorrow is CHRISTMAS day! It's also my beautiful mother's birthday and it's one more day of celebration. This year my heart is full of love for my family and joy for this incredible season. I am so blessed. Silent Night is my favorite hymn from our Christmas Church service. It is so beautiful and simple yet the words say all you need. So, tonight as I lay in bed and fall asleep to "A Christmas Story" on repeat, I won't forget why were celebrate this day, to celebrate Jesus. Merry Christmas everyone, I hope your day is merry and bright.

Silent Night, Holy Night. All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in Heavenly peace

Silent Night, Holy Night. Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heave afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia! 
Christ the Savior is Born. 

Silent Night, Holy Night. Song of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy Holy Face
With the dawn of redeeming grade
Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.
