Today we decorated for Christmas. Where was my camera? I don’t know. Do you ever find that you’re so busy in the moment that you don’t capture the moment? Yep, that was us today. It’s good to be that way sometimes.
But tonight, with the tots watching that classic Rudolf movie, I played with Isaac by the tree. All the lights were off except the tree lights. There is something magical about the tree lights.
Isaiah 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
As I was looking up my Jesse Tree post, I stumbled across The Perfect Un-Perfect Christmas. I’m chuckling to myself. Two years later and I am still good at making unrealistic expectations of myself and I am still working at letting them go. Today is December 5th. Technically we are 5 days behind in our Advent book, but I console myself with the reminder that it isn’t that we read through the book by Christmas but that we prepare our hearts to remember His coming and to learn something about Him.
As for being behind on the chocolate advent calendars – I’m going to catch up on those for the children right now. Shhh. Don’t tell!
