For the third year in a row, we find ourselves celebrating Christmas away from home. As much as it is nice to explore new (and some not so new) places, there’s really no place like home. Thinking we will spend Christmas 2016 in Kingston :)
Over the last few days, we’ve wandered the Eaton Centre on more than one occasion, and it struck us just how stressful of a time this can be for so many. Amidst dinner obligations, presents, and blowout sales, we often forget that the first Christmas was rung in with very little fanfare. On a quiet night, with makeshift accommodation and the humble presence of few, our Saviour Jesus Christ was born. And he continued to live a life of humility despite all that happened around him.
Kelvin and I find ourselves experiencing a similarly quiet evening tonight. Having enjoyed an early dinner with my extended family, and having put Andy to bed, we now have a few hours of downtime before we ourselves head to sleep.
And so, from our family to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas :)
