Merry Christmas

Christmas Eve Mass was beautiful. The Church was decorated with tons of pointsettas, wreaths and beautiful Christmas trees. There was a large manger scene and we heard awesome Christmas carols.
This morning I woke up to a wonderful Christmas with loving family that I am so blessed with and so grateful to our Lord for sending to me.

Today is the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior. I cherish this time and this day. I hope and pray that every one out there has an awesome Christmas. As one of my favorite hymns says,"Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me."   Merry Christmas.

Dear Lord help us to educate our family for your glory.

"Since parents have conferred life on their children, they have a most solemn obligation to educate their offspring. Hence, parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children. Their role as educators is so decisive that scarcely anything can compensate for their failure in it. For it devolves on parents to create a family atmosphere so animated with love and reverence for God and others that a well-rounded personal and social development will be fostered among children. Hence, the family is the first school of those social virtues which every society needs."--Gravissimum Educationis (one of the documents of the Second Vatican Council)
