Advent Observations 2

Advent week 2 passed quickly and quietly. All gifts are purchased and wrapped. We wrap all our gifts in wool tartan fabric or canvas bags (depending on the size).

As we continue this season, I find I truly love our rustic and eco-minded Advent wreath. The beeswax leaves such a delicious scent in the air. So far the first tealight candle is still going strong.

#Rough — Kelly cut this nice round of wood for me to use as the base of our wreath.

#Wild — Our parish practiced stenciling on t-shirts and canvas bags for a big upcoming project. This beautiful heart reminds me that faith can be a wild ride at times. It also reminds me of the line “Let my soul rise up to meet you as the day rises to meet the sun.”

#Grow — As I grow in faith, simplicity becomes more meaningful.

#Smooth — My inflammation buster tea. I’m seeing benefits and enjoying the tangy taste.

#Cry — Happy tears as our son turns 30. He taught me motherhood, unconditional love, and a fierceness.
