Advent: ready....and breathing again....

Well, it seems my "cold" stuffiness may have just been allergies. Not so stuffy tonight. (let's hope that's it)...

And, I finally got most of the stuff done that I have been working on all week - almost ready for Advent. I just have an article to write for the newsletter and a sermon to prepare...

The stations for Advent MDG's turned out well, I think, thanks to some help I got from various RevGals...I will try to photo a few of them and post them...

I have the reflection booklet done for lighting the Advent wreath candles, emphasising the MDG's, (which people can take home, along with the advent wreaths they can make). And the Prayers of the People are done, also emphasizing the MDG's...and, the seasonal worship booklet is done. (Big sigh of relief)....

So. Now. I can breath a little.

Oh. And I have my itinerary for my trip to the far SW...so an idea of what that will be like too. Actually looking forward to it!

Winter allergies are really annoying-made worse by the dryness that comes with the season-I've had year round allergies all my life-shot starting at 7 etc. Do you have a hepa filter, humifier etc? Zyrtec works well for me. Keep a pan of water where you sleep...of course that makes molds worse. You just can't win sometime.

Thanks, I use a prescription nasal spray for my allergies...will check on or try the others...these allergies have gotten worse with age, and worse again in the winter...sigh.

oh, I'm so glad you are feeling better.

I am excited to read/see more about your Advent stations.

One of my favorite memories from childhood was the Advent wreath at dinner table and the little book of readings for each night, with the antiphon:

"Our King and Saviour draweth nigh
O, Come, let us adore him."
