2nd of advent

a simple lunch on the second sunday of advent. lighting the candle peace has been done at breakfast and every meal there after. it is a good thing to be reminded by this second light to be thankful for the peace we have and plea to God for peace on those places on our planet who suffer incredible hardships caused by war.

for in the prophet isajah we read:
"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."

our sunday lunches are usually pretty simple, soup and bread. for the adults paired with a glass of wine. yesterdays soup was yam with parsley and beef broth, topped with a mild parmesan.
and yes it was a real winter's day, lots of snow coming down from the sky, we are in a deep white wonderland here in switzerland. every thing slowed down and almost came to a stand still this morning, it took a while to clear the streets though the trains ran on schedule as we are used here in the land of "every thing run's on time"...
