Living the Christmas Story
It’s a snowy fourth Sunday of Advent here in Vermont at Old Stone Well Farm, and as I get the manger out in preparation of Christmas Eve, I share how nativities came to be part of our Christmas decorations and how the first living nativity was the brainchild of a certain saint who loved not only animals, but the Babe of Bethlehem. (Can you guess who that is?)
So how about doing something special today as you take time to sit back and enjoy our time at the farm together. Why not mull some cider? Or perhaps add a cinnamon stick to your steaming cup of coffee? Or if you are feeling really decedent, whip up some homemade hot coco and don’t hold back on the whip cream.
Treat both your tastebuds and your soul. And share the special message of striving to live Christmas with all you know and love.
Thank you for another moving message today. I feel sad for the people who find the Christmas story and the teachings of Jesus appalling. And I am glad there are many others who find meaning in them and live their lives according to those teachings. I thank you for your PT advent messages and for your Sunday morning videos. They mean a lot to me.
This Irish Christmas Blessing is my wish for you during this holy season and beyond.
May you be blessed with the spirit of the season which is peace.
The gladness of the season which is hope
And the heart of the season which is love.
Peace, Nancy Spann
Nancy, this Irish Christmas Blessing was a such a gift to get on Sunday morning as I made my way to my little rural church for my last service with them. Thank you!!!! Blessings! Donna
