Christmas Eve
Once again the church was lit mainly with candles. The service was led by Suzanne Nockels.
Most people have ideas of what they want their life to be, what occupation they want to follow, they plan their future in their minds – but quite often the future does not turn out to be at all as we planned … events occur which change our direction, or we decide differently and often this change of direction is for the best even though at the time we might not think so. Mary and Joseph did not want to change their plans for the birth of their baby to leave friends and relations and travel 100+ miles to register in the town of Bethlehem – they did not plan for their baby to be born in a stable, and yet this was such a momentous occasion that it is talked about even today.
It is good for us all to have hopes and aims for our lives but it is not good for anyone to be disappointed if things dont work out the way planned .. just live your life in the best way you know how and have faith that all will be well.
