As tomorrow marks the first Sunday of Advent, I thought it would be nice to create a natural wreath from the beautiful materials I gathered this evening (in the dark!) from our own yard and a neighboring horse pasture. It's a lot easier to go out and buy an artificial wreath at the craft store, but there's absolutely no comparison with the natural beauty, the heavenly scent, and the satisfaction I felt in making something out of my own hands.
As we gather for supper each Sunday, we'll light a candle in anticipation and remembrance of Christ's birth, His gift of Light to the World. The fourth and last candle saved to burn on Christmas Day.
