Wishing you a blessed Christmas

I ushered in Christmas with family and friends at a candle light church service where the Christingle has become something of a tradition introduced by my mother who saw the same at a Christmas eve service in Hong Kong. It was a beautiful service.
Let me share the significance of the Christingle with you
A Christingle consists of four things. The Orange represents the world. The lighted candle represents Jesus, the Light of the World. The four sticks of raisins and sweets represent the four seasons and the bounty of the earth. The red ribbon is circular and represents God's unending love.
I hope Christmas was a warm and blessed affair for all of you and I hope 2010 is a happy, healthy and prosperous year for all.
