fourth light of Advent

fourth light of advent

The fourth light of Advent
it is the light of man.
The light of love,
the light of thought,
to give and understand.

Heard three mornings ago ... Mum, Mum, come in here quick! The sheep have arrived!

And wonder of wonders, this morning the shepherd turned up. Mary and Joseph can't be far behind.

Gorgeous advent posts, you are inspiring me to 'do' advent next year. Can you remind me, please?

Lovely post as usual.

I just love blogs. That wonderful picture of your sweet little elf with the Santa hat doesn't look AT ALL like Christmas to me. Christmas here is six hours of daylight per day and wrapping up in coats, hats and scarves and everything in the garden brown and dead. How various the world is! Happy Christmas to all the Soups!

Re your comment: how can one do mangoes wrong?

Maybe they don't like the journey from... where do mangoes come from?.. to the frozen north. Not that it's at all frozen at the moment. Just dark and damp.

Our boy doesn't think they taste like soap, and to be strictly accurate I don't do a lot of soap-tasting myself so maybe I'm wrong.

Anyway. He can eat them. I can't wait for him to come home. You are so lucky having your boys available at all times!

I am also enjoying these Advent posts. There is something very soothing and inspiring about this tradition (and your photography).

Merry Christmas dear Suse.
