And, here we are. The fourth week of Advent. All the candles are lit. The anticipation is reaching a crescendo. All the details have to either fall into place or pushed aside. Jesus is coming, ready or not.
Finally, this week has had the moments of peaceful play that every mother loves. We've still had beautiful weather which makes it hard to focus on the inside things! Who wants to bake cookies when it's 60 and sunny out? (I don't but this weather is a treat for us.) Who would rather go to the park and be thankful that we don't have to bundle up in coats and mittens and hats? (Me!!) We've still managed to squeeze in some cookies and a drive to look at lights. We are ready in all the important ways. O come, O come Emmanuel!
We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! May the love of Christ surround you with the peace and joy that only HE can give!
