Advent 2: Persevering

It's been a whirlwind week, like so many weeks in December have the potential to be.  There were family members from a distant state:

  Visitors mean airport transport, meals out, trips to places we rarely go.

There were cookies to bake for exchanges and gingerbread cookies to decorate.

There were papers to grade, seemingly endless stacks of papers to grade.

Still there was time for Advent meditation:  yarn to spin into prayer shawls,

a poem reflecting on prophets and December activities while candles keep their watch.
