Slowing down

I am slowing down for the advent season. The four weeks before Christmas which we have almost lost because we are so busy with Christmas preparation. I want my advent to be different, and strive to slow down my steps through my days. Slowing down needs practice, and tonight we practiced with a fire in the hearth, warm sweet rolls and hot chocolate. My eyes seeked the dancing flames, though in between I buried them deep into my book.

Relaxing with hot chocolate in a blue and white china cup. That is a perfect method to make a person slow down.

Amen. Advent is a time for reflection and preparation. Also a time for sharing. Thank you for your wonderful blog.
