Outside my kitchen window, the first snow is falling gently.
The spruce branches are covered with a blanket of white.
Yesterday, the bare garden was rock-hard and angular.
This morning all the sharp edges are rounded and soft.
And the quiet! Such a deep stillness. A perfect beginning for the Advent season.
Tomorrow we will light the first candle – HOPE.
Britt-Arnild is hosting an Advent gathering today. Bloggers are sharing their Advent reflections, and as a hostess gift, their favourite Christmas books.
I will leave you with two of my favourites: Pearl S Buck’s Book of Christmas – a favourite compilation of Christmas stories and The Story of Holly and Ivy by Rumer Godden – a sweet Christmas doll story.
Drop over to Britt-Arnild’s and be blessed.
