It is advent, the darkest time of the year, when we try to enlighten the short days with alot of indoor candles. My advent wreath is filled with four purple candles, and the first one was lit a few hours early last night, to celebrate the homecoming of our son, from three years of studies in Australia.
My morning was busy, so it was already dark when I walked out in the deep snow in the garden to cut a few branches from a pine tree to decorate the wreath. Walking in deep soft snow gives me a very special feeling, especially when I know I will soon be indoors and can warm my feet in front of the fire.
Advent reflections will be posted every day untill Christmas in my main blog.
