Christmas Eve Service

We attended the last Christmas Eve service in Victory Cagayan de Oro yesterday. Gianna of course, wanted to stay in the toddlers room, and the girls didn’t want to go to Kids Church. Danae offered to stay with Gianna and Noelle decided to stay with me and King in the adult service.

During tithes and offering, I reminded Noelle about her tithe. She proceeded to get money from her wallet, and wrote on the envelope. What she wrote blessed my heart.


I pray that you have a great birthday. And please bless Beanie and her family.

In Jesus’ name, AMEN!

And then after the short worship during tithes and offering, she asked me something.

Noelle: are you crying?

Me: a little, yeah.

Noelle: why?

Me: I’m like that when I’m reminded of what Jesus did for me.

Noelle: oh, well I never forget that.

Amen. Thank you Lord that my children know and will never forget what You did for us on the cross. That You died a death we should have died, saving us and forgiving us of our past, present and future sins, and You rose again after three days, giving us the opportunity to have eternal life with You in heaven, IF we believe. Thank You Lord that my children also believe.

I asked Gianna this morning, when she woke up momentarily, whose birthday it is today.

Gianna: Jesus.

Me: what did you say to Jesus?

Gianna: happy birthday to you.

Me: what did He say?

Gianna: I don’t know.

Haha I love that her response was real and that it made sense. Sometimes we really don’t know.

Lord, we pray for great faith for our children, that they will have a vibrant, intimate relationship with You, and that they will constantly hear You and seek to hear You and obey You every day of their lives. In Your name, amen.

Merry Christmas everyone! May you find that the true meaning of Christmas is Jesus. I pray that everyday will be Christmas for us, that everyday is with, for and about Jesus. ❤️
