First Sunday of Advent

Today, one candle was lit in the Advent wreath. The sermon was about impatience in this season of waiting. I couldn't resist taking the Old Santas out of their hibernation. They have made a yearly appearance since D was a little boy.

We have our wreath on the front door and a Welcome wreath, with two snowmen, on our kitchen door. I feel this year I have room to breathe, finally!

L and her Sunday school mates are shopping for presents for a family not fortunate enough to buy their own. Near disaster was averted, however, when it was revealed that one of them is still expecting Santa to pay a visit on Christmas Eve!

I'm looking forward to all of it this year. I'm impatient to begin!

Hallo again,
Thankyou for your comment on my blog. You conjur up the 'waiting' for Christmas so well. I have yet to put up a wreath on our front door. I often make one out of Eucalyptus leaves and a little gold paint for sparkle.

Don't you think in our heart of hearts, we all want 'Santa' still to visit? :)
