I am hopelessly behind on all things due to work commitments but on this first Sunday of Advent, I just want to stop by & send my richest blessings to everyone as we start the countdown to Christmas.
I find this day always reminds me of the Christianity of the season & is a time of reflection.
I have lit my advent candle & I love watching it flicker each night - a few minutes to focus on the passing days & especially those who will not be with us at Christmas ...
I love my Ethiopian crosses - bought on my many travels around that amazing country. I mounted them in a vintage gold frame some time back & they keep me grounded; I describe myself as spiritual & like the observances that punctuate our year leading up to Christmas.
Tonight my candle is near the crosses & also my angel candle holder & a favourite book
May you have a lovely & peaceful start to the festive season, from my home to yours,
