Time To Prepare


Yes, time marches on.  Where did this year go?  It is time to prepare for the coming of The Lord.  That is the reason for this Season.  At church, tree is decorated with “Chrismons” ( ornaments that symbolize Christ – {Christ’s Monograms} ) and each Sunday we reflect on why and how we prepare.  There is one more Sunday in advent and the children will light the last candle in the Advent Wreath.  In the center is the Christ Candle which they will light on Christmas Eve.  Then on Christmas Eve we will celebrate Jesus’ Birthday with a party prior to the Christmas Eve Service.

Sandi and the kids aren’t able to come to visit as Sandi doesn’t have the time off, but will be able to come for New Years Eve and the weekend before. That will be kind of neat because that weekend we will be having a Chili Cook Off.  The Campground is almost full.  Maybe she can be a judge.

In the mean time I am making cookies for church and doing last minute shopping ( like most everyone else.),  Other than that it is just work and doing much of anything.

I did take a road trip to Wimberly, approximately an hour from here, but I was already at church, so it wasn’t that much farther.  It is a little town that has a lot of little shops, art galleries and restaurants.  (I didn’t take pictures)  Colleen of Traveling with Long Dogs had told me about it, so I thought I would check it out and may go back to go through more of the shops another time.

I hope that you all are having a wonderful December.

Thanks for visiting
