With all the craziness of the holidays and with 8 kids we have decided to start doing our candlelight service at home. Typically we would be chasing our smaller kids around trying to keep them quiet during the service at church. Doing this service at home makes for a more relaxed atmosphere and the children see m to take in more of what is said. We light 3 candles one for my Mom, one for my Son Tyler and the other is for all others who have passed before us. Some versus we use during the service are:
Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Luke 1:35 And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy–the Son of God. Matthew 1:23 “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us).
