|My lit up living room this morning|
super early to make sure he's awake, conscious, and arrives at the school by 6 AM.
While I'm not thrilled by early morning practices, I have discovered a bright side. That being, that I have much more time in the mornings for the things that I love: writing, reading, reflecting, (the 3 r's!).
However, this morning I decided to simply sit in the silence of the lit Christmas tree. With my coffee, of course. No music, no screens. Simply quiet. It was magical. It was peace-filled. It was a gift. And it was free!
For the rest of Advent, which isn't all that long yet, I want to continue to do this in the mornings. It makes sense to me given how much noise there is surrounding this season. This is one way of keeping closer to the things that matter most.
If you decide to give this idea a try, I would love to hear what you experience.
But if not this, may you find your heart prepared for the gift of the Savior King.
