A Candlelight Christmas

Jolly jolly. Merry Christmas. (*´╰╯`๓)♬

I LOVE Christmas. Well, who doesn’t. EVERYONE enjoy celebrating Christmas. It’s a season of joy and love. All shopping malls are beautifully decorated, everyone is shopping for their loved one regardless of race or religion. We all acknowledged the beauty of GIVING, and we know we are blessed when we are able to give! ❤

2014 Christmas eve. This year I learned that Christmas is really not about Santa Claus, not another day spent drinking and partying. Christmas, is all about Jesus Christ, the day of the earthly birth of our Saviour. This year, again, I spent my Christmas Eve in the house of God, City Harvest Church.

My guest of the night.(๑′ᴗ‵๑)

We started off with praise and worship, followed by a special performance by the Watoto Children’s Choir.

“Watoto means “Children” in Swahili language. The choir is made up of children who have lost one or both parents to the AIDS epidemic or to war. Their performances are a unique blend of native African rhythms, contemporary gospel music and ethnic dance.”

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.

I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

Then, the magical moment begins! #candlelightchristmas

“A Christmas candle is a lovely thing; It makes no noise at all, But softly gives itself away.”

#2014 has been good. I learned to live a life of GRATITUDE. Of course being a Christian, doesn’t mean my life is smooth sailing. I face circumstances in life, and often challenged, but believe there is reason to be thankful in them. It was Jesus who said, in effect, “So don’t be anxious about tomorrow. God will take care of your tomorrow, too.”

I thank God for the people that I love &, love me.
I thank God for all the blessings HE put in my life.
I thank God for challenging me, & constantly using me.
I thank God for always being there for me.

#WEFIE, while waiting for the others to get their “lights”.

(Oh yes, we do not light up the candle by lighter or so. Pastor started lighting up the candle, and slowly passed to us and the others through the leaders.)

Iggy, MK & Jordan.

& then, the whole place was filled with lights, forming a sea of lights as we remember the Light of the world who came down to earth for us. It was beautiful, & truly magical.

Jesus, the light of our lives! Indeed fascinating! ლζ*♡ε♡*ζლ
