Advent peace | todayisagift's Blog

....Advent is actually my favorite part of the Christmas season....a time of quiet reflection, examination of one's heart and mind....preparation for Christ's coming.  Perfect reason not to get caught up in the hubbub of the ugly commerciality of Christmas.  I feel at Peace.   Wish the same for all.
Doing lots of art for my loved ones and trying my hand at those easy to make fleece blankets.     Enjoying the journey, praying over each gift as it is created. 
My husband does not like the decorations to go up before the 15th . After the 15th our schedule is pretty busy with entertaining his clients at the house and elsewhere so I anticipate feeling some pressure but the good kind....lots to look forward to. 
Have been blessed recently with a new friend - I met her at an open house at a local gallery and she and I struck up a great conversation about the featured artists which morphed into a conversation about our own art pursuits, which led to coffee the next day which has lead into our personal lives and lo and behold- she and I share similar lives with our husbands and families.  While I have enjoyed conversing on EP about the ins and outs of being in an extremely traditional marriage I look forward to she and I 's journey together.  The trip to the Gallery was a double blessing because it has not been possible for me to have much "me" time because of the demands of my husbands work schedule and keeping things clicking at home so when I got to the gallery --well it was just a very special treat. 
Blessings to all and I hope you all have a special blessing come your way today!

I am happy for you that you had a good time at the gallery and met a new friend! I am sure it will be great to be able to share things with her since she lives in a similar way! I wish you a wonderful Christmas season! Hugs!
