I have many favorite Christmas songs. O Holy Night is one of my favorites.

“This week, we’re proposing something a little different to celebrate the end of the year. Instead of a specific theme or topic, we invite you to share your most meaningful photo from 2017” – Ben Huberman
It is our tradition to watch the New Year around the world and here is the New York city welcoming the Year 2017.
In February, when we walked around our favorite Laguna Lake, we watched the lovely family of Mama ducking and her seven ducklings.
In March, we visited Mercy and Will in Portland, Oregon and found out the exciting news that Mercy was pregnant.
In April, a group of friends from church visited the President Nixon Library.
In May, we visited Mercy and Will again and they treated me for an enjoyable Mother’s Day Brunch.
In June, a group of ladies from church went on a short trip of “walk and brunch” in Newport Beach.
In July, we started several home projects. One of them was to paint the interior of our home.
In August, Mercy’s friends gave her a wonderful Baby Shower. She was showered with abundant blessings.
On September 28, we welcomed the precious baby Autumn. She brought so much joy into our life.
On October 15, Autumn had her first pumpkin patch visit.
In November, we had a great family gathering of Thanksgiving dinner.
In December, Miriam participated in her fifth year of performance of Handel’s Messiah.
Mercy went back to work two days ago after twelve weeks of maternity leave. She missed Autumn so much and was happy to pick her up from the daycare.

We had a wonderful Christmas in Portland, Oregon. It was such a precious and fun time to be with our daughter and son-in-law.
In a five-day time, we went to Christmas Eve service, played board games or card games on three days, had home made waffle and veggie breakfast. For a dinner, we made pizza with personalized toppings, and chocolate chips cookies from scratch.
Then went to see Star Wars in a theater, and watched two movies at home; also went to see the Christmas lights on Peacock Lane.
On our daughter’s birthday, we had a wonderful dinner at her favorite restaurant. It was a relaxing, memorable family Christmas.
Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!
It was a miracle that my friend Teresa was able to decorate her house with cheerful collections and fabulous lighting. She hosted a Christmas party for twenty-five ladies last night.
Teresa has had irregular heart rates and severe vertical for eighteen months. The first twelve months, she was confined in bed most of the time. No medications could stop the dizziness. She had taken all the tests the doctors ordered, but no illness was identified.
During August this year, in one of her devotions, she read I King chapter 18 about Elijah praying for rain. Elijah kept praying until the servant saw the cloud as small as a man’s hand. The tiny cloud turned into heavy rain.
From that point on, Teresa, with the faith as small as a man’s hand, prayed for healing. She was feeling better by the days. Eventually she had energy to decorate the whole house for Christmas. When she shared that with the ladies, she almost choked up with tears.
What a wonderful Christmas party I attended tonight. Twenty five ladies got together to share fun, food, and friendship. The hostess’ house is elaborately decorated.
