From the standpoint of my faith, I am thankful for Christmas Eve, the day that marks the hope of all hope. I reflect today on this, knowing that I, even in my brokenness, am given the gift of redemption.
"Hark the herald angels sing, glory to the new born king. Peace on Earth and mercy mild, God and sinner reconciled. Joyful all ye nations rise, join the triumph of the skies. With the angelic host proclaim: Christ is born in Bethlehem. Hark the herald angels sing, glory to the new born king."
