family advent

we are gearing up for our advent tradition to sit down and be still for am moment each day, during the season of advent. just our family, which is a unique happening regardless.
in our up stairs sitting room with candle light, song sheets, a story book and something hot (some times even spicy) to drink and something delicious and seasonal to eat....

it was anticipated by all of us, and i was surprised how the older ones longed for those evening times. it will not be possible for all of us to sit together on all evenings. though we do our best and as prayer is also part of our ritual, we include the missing ones in a special way.
we are reading a book by franz hohler's "die nacht des kometen", and i'm looking forward to travel with the the family, alongside the characters, back to bethlehem.
