For me, the simple lighting of the Advent candle at our little church each Sunday
is the call to intentionality amidst all the activity...
Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. ~Carl Sandburg
...last week, a public display of nativity sets; this week parties, ladies' Bible study & gift exchanges.
Next week, our Lady Bugs Christmas meeting. Wednesday noon advent meals.
An evening dinner with friends. Then comes the Candlelight Christmas Eve service, my 62nd birthday, a much-anticipated extended family Christmas gathering,
and far too soon - 2011.
