I have been a bit non communicado of late. Things have been tricky, too exhausted for words and kind of going a bit frayed around the edges mentally too.
But today I am coming out of my blogging hidey hole and getting my mojo back !
I think sometimes this blog can be a little frenetic, one day I am writing about toddler antics, the next about the bible and then sometimes just thinkings.
For me a lot of this blog is about expressing and documenting my thoughts and daily life. In the Bible when something happened, or God have them a specific blessing, His people would build an alter as a reminder of his faithfullness. And in some ways a few of these posts are like that for me. There's no way I'm hauling my weary body outside to build a stone alter in our small garden.......not to mention the looks I'd get from the neighbours !
It's good for me to be able to look back at photos and writing of happy family times, and beautiful nature when those days are not currently a flowin in Deane land. By nature I am a 'glass half full' kind of lady, but even the most positive of people has days where that glass just looks plain dry and empty ey ?
So here is my Alter for this week............
Christmas tree decorating. ( photo to follow when I have sorted out the fact my blog host thingame says there is no space for new photos - eeeek )
We were going to head to a lovely forest near our house where there is christmas music, food and a cute train for Little tyke to ride on, but to be honest the trees are pricey, energy was low, and we were trying to be thrifty, so went in search of a cheaper offering, that wouldn't leave our from bank account becoming more red than it already is :)
We found our little offering, in the 'reject' section, it's cute little shape fits perfectly in our lounge and for a tenner, can't be scoffed at. What's more it was grown nearby, so makes us feel a little more eco friendly ( as we throw away our disposable nappies and turn up our heating.....ahem ) while we hang the lights over it's little rejected branches.
That's all for now folks, I love this time of year, and hope you are enjoying festivities in amongst the busy - ness of life. Life is busy isn't it, too busy for some.
Sip some mulled wine, and dwell on the awesomeness of God coming to earth as a baby - how weird is that !!!!
