Christmas morning

A father takes his twelve year old to early mass, even if she has gone to midnight mass already, did not get enough sleep, and hasn't opened a single present yet: she is playing a beautiful arrangement of Joy to the World for a prelude. They stop to look at the newborn Child.

Life is filled with such moments. It is easy to disregard them completely. But O, what rewards come to the heart when we do notice them.

My heart thanks the Lord!
