The Wise Men are on their way to Bethlehem…Will their wisdom touch some men and women during their long travel ?
Maybe they will talk together about Peace, show love, bring much needed food and presents ? Give protection ?
Looking at the bright sky above, they might see Stars of Hope for the coming year ?
May the Light enveloping them all bring a feeling of comfort and understanding.
And the war roar be replaced by the angels’ singing.
Sometimes I like to dream and imagine how different things could be. Unrealistic, I know but then at this particular time, I like to make a pause, think of others and wish everyone moments of peace, togetherness, love, health, understanding, joy.
WISHING YOU ALL A BLESSED CHRISTMAS, HERE AND THERE !
We shall find peace
We shall hear angels
We shall see the sky
Sparkling with diamonds (like stars).

What a change of weather and temperatures in those first two weeks of Advent !
Snow fell – a little – and left.
It was followed by rather dull and foggy days . Then we got rain, lots of it, although the mood of the Season is here : red colors. Crisp, cold days, trees decorated in red or were they goblins’ tall hats ? A lot of red also in the window shops, fa sho’ !Red but frozen, a forgotten heart in a pot on the terrace. Forgotten but not broken !Outside the air is cold, a few leaves are still blooming in the late afternoon sun.But inside, a hot and spiced Christmas pot of tea awaits you for a quiet moment in the warm shades of candlelight. And… a cake too, if you feel like it. A lemon scented cake.Happy Advent’s time to you all, Friends, wherever you are.
