In the quite still of the night
See if you can make a few minutes to sit and talk with your bride on Christmas Eve after everything is done and the kids are in bed (not sleeping). Sit and watch the fire, the tree, or a candle; sip your favourite hot beverage, snuggle up, and share the moment. Share memories of Christmas past, both from your time together and your childhoods. Say a prayer for the morning, for all you have to do Christmas day, and that the reason for the day will not be lost in the craziness of the day.
A very merry Christmas from me to you, your bride, and your family. May the love of our Saviour be seen in your marriage.
