My Blessed Christmas

I am so blessed this Christmas =)

I managed to spend time with people who mattered to me, and that was really precious.

I managed to catch a nap this afternoon, which refreshed me physically.

I ate the stuff I wanted to eat =) Yumz. Am happy.

I got lots of birthday wishes from friends, even an overseas call from Gara in NZ =)

I've got some new books to read and admire.

And a new set of batteries to use, yes.

A tonne of chocolates to fatten myself on, and a monster of a birthday chocolate cake from my favourite baker: My Aunt =)

And I sang the one Christmas carol that really hit the spot in my heart: O Holy Night.

O Holy Night

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining;
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
Here came the wise men from Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our friend!

He knows our need, To our weaknesses is no stranger.
Behold your King, before him lowly bend!
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

And that made my Christmas, Christmas.
