He is Born!

It's indeed been a while since I've had the opportunity to blog; so much has happened! But the short of it will have to remain, the short of it :) We had a beautiful Christmas Eve Vigil mass at our parish; the early one is primarily all about children! Children everywhere, including the main choir. We had fifteen school age children singing with the adult choir, ten of which were the ages of 8-9. The children's voices were so beautiful -- together there were about 28 singers. Special songs included: He is Born (a French hymn - awesome, if you haven't heard it), Dona, Nobis, Pacem, and a special number on guitar with the children singing: Children, Run Joyfully. All was inspiring, and memorable - lingering on for a long time to come. If you go to this link, you can hear a snipet of the song, Children Run Joyfully.

I hope all my visitors have had and are continuing to have a wonderful Christmastide. May God bless you all abundantly in this beautiful liturgical season as it leads us on into the new year ahead!
