nativity and noche buena
Take time to be aware that in the very midst of our busy preparations for the celebration of Christ’s birth in ancient Bethlehem, Christ is reborn in the Bethlehems of our homes and daily lives. Take time, slow down, be still, be awake to the Divine Mystery that looks so common and so ordinary yet is wondrously present.
The 2L3Bs won't be having our noche buena in our china home this time of the year.. we shall celebrate the birth of Christ in Chanping instead.. We already packed all our belongings and gifts for our Kris Kringle..Whoa, we're kind of excited.. :)
but nothing can replace the Christmas celebration inside the comfort of our home.. we will highly miss pa's roasted chicken and the sumptous meals we used to prepare.. got no choice but to enjoy hotel meals instead.. Being together counts most anyway.. ;)
May you have a blessed Christmas everyone!!!
The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other (-Burton Hills)
