All is bright. While dusting and vacuuming this morning, I noticed the light casting strong shadows across the rooms. From darkness to light - that's what Christmas is all about. Welcome, Jesus, Light of the World.
This year the stockings are hung with care - on the stair case! Eleven of them are a graphic illustration of how our family is expanding.
Gifts are piling up under the tree, to be opened on Boxing Day (we alternate Christmases with in-laws), but we'll have a short get together this evening after church. And so it's back to the kitchen where things are not calm just now with lists of things to make.
Wishing you the most merry of Christmases - may your season be bright!
