Our "Christmas by Candlelight" evening....

This week, we had our "Christmas by Candlelight" Relief Society Activity in our ward/congregations. 

We filled Santa's bag with lots of canned goods for the Utah Food Bank....thank you very much!

Enjoyed the cuisine of many of our talented sisters.....what a spread!

There was a lot to visit about.....

We took time to catch up with each other and share things happening in our families...

Then we all settle down for...a wonderful musical program offered by the Halliday and Heyrend Families.

Our High Priest Group leader was the Master of Ceremonies!

Many wished they had a tissue when we were regaled by our young sister who had been on a difficult, but miraculous journey sang for us.  This rendition of "O Holy Night" was very fitting.

We are very appreciative of everyone who attended (~40 sisters!) and our special guests.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

May you take the spirit that we were blessed with this evening and take it into our homes, our communities, and our hearts.
