When I scanned the vintage card above, I titled it "Christmas Eve Service" because, although it's still light outside, the church is all lighted up and people are coming to it from every direction.
Usually on Christmas Eve we have our two oldest granddaughters over for supper and gift exchanging. This year one of them wasn't feeling well at all and so we reluctantly decided to postpone.
That opened up the unexpected and last-minute opportunity to attend a candlelight Christmas Eve service at a church in another town. Our church had been invited to this but Mr. T and I hadn't planned to go, since we had a previous commitment with our grandkids.
Long story short, we attended and were so blessed. Our Christmas Eve turned out to be very different from the usual, and very different from what we had planned, but it was a true blessing and the message gave us much to ponder.
So thankful that even when our path takes a different turn than we expect, God is in full control and He always has a plan for the detours.
