In years passed I have hosted online cookies exchanges, Christmas craft link ups, perfect present parties…All good things, but probably now long forgotten.
Like a single candle that is lit then passed on I invite you to join me. Either by posting your own small bits of bliss every Sunday on your own blog or just by leaving happy stories through the comments here.
A lovely reminder to help you focus on the good during harried weeks is to create an advent candle display in your home. Each glimpse of it may slow your breath and remind you to focus on the eternal light. Of course with the help of Pinterest you can see that the lighting of the advent candle has come a long way. It is no longer limited to just a wreath. You can use simple canning jars, old tins, wooden boxes, and so much more. Ever simple, but truly lovely.
It was my mother, Nadine, who introduced me to the advent candle. In her memory this week I will be creating our display in her old crazed ceramic bundt pan.
