Evening Relaxation

I love the Christmas season, like most people I know. This year has been so busy coming up to December that I almost didn't feel like decorating or anything. Then I pulled out my advent calendars, a couple I have saved from years past and a new chocolate calendar plus a new tea calendar.

Reading that first little square, "And the angel said to Mary..." helped me get excited and start thinking about advent, waiting expectantly for our Savior.

It is only December 2nd but I am already enjoying this new idea of taking 5 minutes at night with a cup of tea, a piece of chocolate and my kindle with an advent devotional downloaded to refocus and relax before bed. (I should not have sat down before taking out the garbage tonight!)

I am looking forward to getting the decorations up sometime soon! And, wonder what tomorrow's tea will be...

Shan, I have had an advent calendar sitting here waiting for me to send to you for over a year, but time passes and I forget. If I send it now, it will be there in time for next advent. LOL

Sounds like a perfect end to each evening.
