That wonderful time of Advent.
It has always been a delightful time in our family with lots of preparing and learning as we meander along our way to the blessed event of Christmas and the birth of our Saviour.
As usual I am up late trying to get all my plans together for our Unit Study for this time.
Of course all the plans I had for today were not accomplished due to outside influences.
However I would like to share a few scenes from today as we started our decorating and putting up the tree, and of course starting our St Andrew novena too.
'Hail, and blessed be the hour and moment
At which the Son of God was born
Of a most pure Virgin
At a stable at midnight in
In the piercing cold
At that hour vouchsafe, I beseech Thee,
To hear my prayers and grant my desires
(mention request here).
Through Jesus Christ and His most Blessed Mother.'
Said 15 times a day from Feast of St Andrew till Christmas Eve
I pray you all enjoy this blessed preparation season of Advent with your families as we journey together towards Christmas.
