It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Our house has been decorated for about a week. Lyle even put up our lights outside already. I love this time of year so much. My favorite moments are the earliest and latest points of the day, when all is quiet and no lights are shining except those on the Christmas tree. When I’m free to peacefully anticipate the moment that Advent leads up to – the joyous, celebratory occasion. Love, love, love. I love it.
