Week 46, can you believe it?
As Sally indicated in her email, the holiday season is coming quickly, whether we are ready or not. Our assignment is to take a moment and reflect on all the joy, peace and happiness and love before the hustle and bustle is upon us.
I love the season of Advent almost as much as I love celebrating Christmas.
Advent is as much reflecting as it is looking forward.
This is a "Li Bien" Ornament from Pier One. I have been purchasing them for several years now, for keepsakes for our kids, for myself and also as a gift to my Sunday School teachers who sacrifice their time to teach our little ones.
The art of Li Bien-or 'inside painting originated in China during the Qing Dynasty-a respected art for over 200 years. These ornaments are blown and hand painted by a master artist. Every year Pier One offers a variety of ornaments which are all lovely. This one is for our own tree.
