Fourth Sunday of Advent and Christmas Wishes to All

Yesterday was the last Sunday of Advent. So we lit the fourth candle of our advent candles.

There are several traditions about the meaning or theme of each candle. The scheme that accords best with the Common Worship Principal Service Lectionary for the fourth Sunday of Advent is The Virgin Mary.  We also pray for Love.



********************
I wanted to say a huge Thank You to all of those who left their good wishes for my Aunt.  She is continuing to improve daily at an amazing rate, which is so wonderful.  I am sure that so many people sending good thoughts can only have helped.

********************


This blogging business has been more fun that I ever imagined or dared to hope.  Thank you for making it such fun, for the support care and interest you have all shown.  It makes it worthwhile and lots of fun.



I had planned to pop by all of those who follow me and who I follow to say a personal Happy Christmas, but I think that I have run out of time now!

So instead I wish each and every one of the people who read this blog a

VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND A WONDERFUL 2014!



See you all next year!
 
Amy
