Our church held an Advent by candlelight for the women this evening. It is a good way to prepare for the holiday season and to get into the proper mood and have the right focus for this coming month. We enjoyed songs, Bible readings, good food, and the company of women.
My oldest daughter wanted to come along, but she needed to go to bed after a full day that included watching a very long Christmas parade this morning. There is also a reason why the kids do not come; it is difficult to focus with children in tow.
