Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

We get together on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, we gather around at the table, we pray thanking God for another year, eat, we play games, take plenty of pictures and then we exchange gifts.

We always reach out every year and adopt a family to be a blessing to them because God has blessed us in so many ways.
We go around the table and if anyone wants to say anything they have the opportunity to do so.

My mother always loved to hear the children sing the “Twelve Days of Christmas” and we always enjoy singing that of course, playing “Silent Night” by The Temptations, which will never go out of style, and “We Wish You A Merry Christmas.”
Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and sometimes I feel that people forget the reason for the season.
