We had been looking forward to this night and were not disappointed! We started out at 6:00. The temperature was 34 degrees – nice and warm compared to last year! We were very grateful that it was not near as cold as it has been some years, and we stayed very comfortable with our cold weather layers on.
It was so beautiful because it snowed the whole time we were out. It was the perfect caroling night, and of all the places we stopped, I think only one or two people werenâ€™t home! We sang Joy to The World at every house, and it was such a blessing to be able to sing about the true JOY that has come into the world.
We then piled into our two small cars (since we no longer have a van because we traded it in when we bought the bus two years ago)! It was a bit of a chore getting nine bundled-up people to fit into the ten available seats! We wanted to carol to three more houses before the night was over. We always return home after our caroling evening feeling so blessed and with our hearts overflowing. We are ever grateful for the opportunity to show Jesusâ€™ love to those around us!
â€œThen will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.â€ (Psalms 43:4)
