{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} Advent Begins


The deep purples, the candlelight, the smell of pine, Advent wreaths, the saints of Advent, 
Sweet Juan Diego

The Immaculate Conception of Our Lady

St Cecilia
the haunting hymns of longing and waiting........all so beautiful.  Sometimes I think I love Advent even more than Christmas, weird as that may seem.  Being part of "A Pilgrim People" I suppose it is easier to understand waiting and watching more than fulfillment.

Saint Cecilia and St. Nicholas with Our Lady

{Happy and Funny}

Photo snippets of our production of William Shakespeare's Star Wars:  Verily A New Hope.  We had a blast with this epic tale!  The costumes were so fun, the kids were so energetic, the electric slide met a Galaxy far, far set was built by some amazing dads all in one day. The crew was fantastic! I love drama!  Every single thing about it.  Hair, make up, costumes, sets, music! Have I mentioned that I love drama? 

Oh COULD you have done it!  On bad days I have a real problem with old Eve eating that apple.  But then, "happy fault" that it was, God came and "pitched his tent among us"!
