I am getting ready to head beachwards to spend Christmas with my entire family...its been a while.
Whilst I do love bright baubles and decorating with traditional colours, part of me also sighs with much appreciation at a washed out 'bleached' summer sunlight theme that so fits our Australian culture.
it soothes the mind and the soul....
it calms the overly sensitised spirit
and allows for a moment or two relaxing
and dreaming about what lies around the next bend in the road.
Whilst quietly reflecting in church this morning, I pondered again at the many beautiful songs in the hymn book. What a fitting way to mark the commencement of each new week.....a line or two from a chosen hymn.
