Getting Ready for Advent
Fix the Advent wreath, for instance. (This is one from three years ago when I had a crop of beautiful roses still blooming in December. You'll see this year's version sometime during the month.)
For two, spend some time being quiet and settling down. Which, again, is what Advent is for, except that when you work in a large and busy parish, Advent can be hectic. Tomorrow is going to be a very busy day, so I spent today doing things slowly and reflectively to get off to a good start.
And third, since this blog is a place for me to be creative, I "redecorated" here to better reflect the season.
Not only does the blog template look different, but all of my photos during Advent will be photographs of lights or candles with a few angels and maybe some snow and thrown in for good measure. Even if life gets hectic during Advent for me (or for you), it will be Advent-y through and through here. I hope that I will find time to write more often, too. I hope we all find that helpful.
And so, blessings for a special time of expectation and preparation to you, friends, this holy Advent season.
