Happy Advent

girls_tree

We were given a small Christmas tree by former Tyndale residents who are moving to Ethiopia; the first day we explored our new flat I found a box full of Christmas decorations and fairy lights tucked away in the living room closet, left by former tenants.

We put on Christmas music, ate cheese and crackers from Sainsbury’s and homemade gingerbread cake (topped with brandy cream for the adults) and turned our home into a wonderland.

Waiting is hard–but it can be beautiful as well. December is the month of hope, my friends. Let’s light the dark together.

  1. What a beautiful photo! Thank you! How lovely that you were left Christmas ornaments and a tree to put them on. God is good! He truly does provide. I rejoice with you. And that Ginger Bread is my favorite too!
    Blessings and love,
