Sunday Morning Reflections

 

On this first Sunday in Advent, I will light the first candle in my Advent candle holder and think of friends and family with love.


This morning I woke up early and actually lit the candles. This is enough for me to feel the spirit of Christmas. And I'm so glad that the child in me never quite disappeared.

  2. It looks beautiful. And I see that you have Samson and face framed and sitting on your mantle. What is the wooden thing that has the feathers in it

  4. It is a lovely tradition. We lighted our Advent candle at mass last evening in our church while I sang an Advent hymn by myself because of Covid... It was beautiful to see the little children who will be making their first communion to light the first candle. I don't have an advent wreath with candles at my house but I should make one.
    Stay safe and well.
    Hugs,
    Julia

  9. This is special, as this year so many will celebrate alone, not sharing the time with family who cannot travel, or they just feel safer to stay at home too.Samson, Faith ,and your candles show us all, age does not matter when the seasons come.
