This morning, I participated in one of my favorite Christmas traditions –the annual service of Lessons and Carols at my church.
The service is a proclaiming of the true meaning of Christmas in word and song. I’ve been blessed to be part of the handbell choir for close to a decade now, playing the lower octave bells.
It’s always a wonderful service, always reminding me why and what we are celebrating during the Christmas season. In many ways, it doesn’t feel like it’s Christmas until I’ve been to Lessons and Carols.
And as our family grows in the next year, I’m looking forward to sharing the experience with our daughter.
