Well our house has been transformed since the last time I posted!
We had a lot of internet connection problems which once again were caused by the weather. Up so high in our apartment block the connection is never brilliant, but it cuts out intermittently, making blogging a little difficult sometimes! Fortunately today the weather is warmer, so we are online at the moment.
While all the preparations were going on I made a special meal for us all to enjoy. I timed it just right so that it was ready to eat as soon as all the decorating was done! It was fun to sit by the light of the Christmas tree and other ornaments to eat our special roast dinner meal. We all enjoyed it, and the prayers and fellowship that we shared also. It has been a lovely beginning to Christmas! All around I can see our pretty decorations, plus a couple of new ones - a lighted wreath with tiny wooden decorations on it, and a window ornament with Christmas images on it, that also lights up. These were surprises for the Cubs that I had picked up during the year! Of course, everything always looks best with the lights off, so when we had finished eating, we switched everywhere off into darkness and just enjoyed sharing in the closeness that Christmas always seems to bring. No matter how many gifts there are, we always treasure our Christmases together, and this year is no different.
