Theirs are the little fingers, who can’t yet tie a bow, theirs are the smiles that you see with sparkle in their eyes, theirs are the cheers at the time of play…a little group of friends who each Sunday we meet and say a little prayer together, play a little song,sing and dance together and learn and listen to stories. The past couple of months I have been teaching Children’s Liturgy, a little group of people with big hearts and armfuls of hugs and love…and who have also taught me to take the time, and cherish the ‘ah ha’ moments…
Advent is a time of preparation, and the last couple of weeks we’ve been preparing an Advent Christmas wreath for the Red Cross Christmas Wreath and Tree Competition. With so many new and exciting idea’s, we decided on the Advent colour of purple combining tulle, ribbons, baubles and of course some bling,
I made these little signs…using hot silicone glue and white paint, the words Peace, Love, Hope (purple candles) Joy (pink candle) and Christ (white candle) to hang on our five candles on our wreath. The little children had fun, placing paint on their fingers and leaving their finger prints on our Christmas baubles of bright purple, then we placed each childs name on ribbons to hang on our wreath.
Advent is a special time, and as we prepare for Christmas let’s take the time to give thanks to God for all of the good things in our lives, especially the love of our family and friends.
Joyful Blessings friends,
