I love decorating for Christmas. I used to spend days decorating, everything had to be just right. That seems to be changing. I wish I had been as comfortable with things not being perfect when I was younger as I am now. I probably would have been a much easier person to live with. My decorating seems to be a little more free these days. I think as God is working in me, making changes within me, it is spilling over in my day to day living. I like the changes.
Daily Advent reading: Psalm 23; Isaiah 25v6-9; Matthew 15v29-39
"Awaken, O Lord Jesus, our hearts and minds to your presence in the world of your love's creating. Forbid that we should stumble through this day oblivious to the wonder in the ordinary. With your grace, startle us into faith's perception of your continuing creation in our lives. Amen. Let it be." (Richard John Neubaus)
