It is the last night of Advent. We wait to light the center Christ candle until tomorrow. It symbolizes the coming of Jesus. He came once as a baby, and He will come again as our King.
Christmas is a good time to remember family -- both those present and those loved ones separated from us by either distance or death. In this picture, you can see the pictures of both of my grandmothers. My dad's mother (in the top left) is waiting for us in Heaven. My mom's mother (in the bottom right) wished me a "Merry Christmas" on the phone this morning. I have many fond Christmas memories with her.
