Happy Sunday to you! One week has come to a close and another is just beginning. An endbeginning.
The chilled and frosty air has surrounded us here and from the sounds of it, most of there too. It’s a frigid reminder that this year is approaching the end. These cycles of seasons are harmonious don’t you think?
As the color bleeds to pure white and I savor all the flavors of Thanksgiving (especially an appropriately named coffee bean from a certain Green-sometimes- Red-aproned Barista); I also look forward to Christmas. The twinkling lights, the Bell ringers, the lists and the paper cuts, even the late night baking frenzies – they all fill treasured memories of Christmas past. But this Christmas, more than fancied traditions, I want to really see the gift that Angels heralded.
I want to behold Him.
Will you join me? This advent I will be reading through Liz Curtis Higgs’ book : The Women of Christmas. She leads us to the foot of Messiah’s manger through the lives of three women; Elizabeth, Mary and Anna.
“Christmas is so much more than a Holiday.” “It’s a season for reflection, for preparation, for renewal.”*
Every week I will be posting on 1 or 2 chapters from her book and would be absolutely delighted to have you join me in this discovery! So much so that we’re having a little give-away!
