Wow, that was just beautiful. I wish I could slow down as well. The only deadlines I have are the ones I create out of anxiety. I really needed to read this this morning. Thank you.


This is such a beautiful post, Elizabeth. It is always good for me to be reminded to do only that which is important, rather than running around frantically.


Gorgeous, Elizabeth!
Marianna is an Advent baby and I reminisce frequently this time of year. Sweet memories!

I am right where you are, Elizabeth, and celebrating that special haze with you.

Christmas Novena

  • Hail and blessed be the hour and moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold. In that hour, vouchsafe, O my God! to hear my prayer and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His Blessed Mother. Amen
