LIFESTYLE | Preparing for Christmas
This week & weekend marks the beginning of our Christmas Preparation.
A combination of wanting to be decorated for hosting, knowing that the next bit of time will fly by and realizing that as Advent approaches we want to get our ‘busy’ activities behind us so that we can truly take in the process of Christmas.
This year I was able to find an Advent candle which we have never had before.
Knowing that we will be daily burning this candle, is an exciting and also mindful choice.
While the candle burns:
I will be mindfully taking in the day.
I will be reflecting on what the advent week is : Hope, Faith, Joy, & Peace
I will be considering what parts of my year, life and baggage need to be set down for the coming ‘year’.
As we ready for Christmas,
a time of year we spend with others, consciously give and take in the treats of the season may we also mindfully consider how our hearts can be made new and seek ways in which to find that stillness no matter what time of year it may be.
