Spreading the Light #6

Bob and I chose many years ago not to get caught up in the frenzy of the holidays. We celebrate a quiet, spiritual Christmas. That doesn’t mean we don’t have fun, we simply try not to get drawn into the excesses of the season.

Several years ago I began what I call A Season of Angels. During December I work on an angel art or craft project each day. The purpose of this is to take a little time each day to focus on the spiritual teachings of Advent and the role of angels as God’s messengers.

This year I invite you to take a few minutes each day to slow down the holiday craziness and relax in and reflect on the Light of God.

  1. Thanks for the reminder and encouragement to continue keeping Christ in Christmas. I definitely don’t allow my self to be sucked into spoiling Christmas by over extending. Our family has a quite but wonderful Christmas here in Australia.

  2. Thank you for this suggestion. I’m working on celebrating advent more as well – this year I’m crocheting a character from the Advent story each day. It will culminate on the 24th with Jesus being made and placed in his manger! Thanks for stopping by my blog. You might also enjoy this one: http://www.evasadventcalendar.wordpress.com.
