Blessed Saint Nicholas Day! It's almost midnight, so I'm getting this post in just under the wire for this special day. I've been thinking about it all weekend...about the wonderful play our teens put on at St. John last night as part of our Saint Nicholas weekend celebration. And reflecting on this feast in years gone by. But I've been too busy decorating the house and wrapping gifts to write anything today.
Here's the (tiny) tree...
I call it our "Gracie" tree in honor of our granddaughter Grace... I got these precious little Asian girl ornaments at Pier 1 last week.
And the fireplace with stockings in the process of stuffing...
Including a new stocking for our granddaughter, Grace.
And gifts waiting to be mailed or delivered.... Yes, it's definitely beginning
to look a lot like Christmas!
And here are a couple of photos of Caleb McGee and my husband hanging the outdoor lights yesterday.
No time for writing, but I'm going to link to a blog post that I saw on Facebook tonight..... it's called "Sacred Threshold." The blogger became a member of St Ignatius Orthodox Church in Franklin, Tennessee today. Her blog post is such a blessing. If you take a few minutes to read about her spiritual journey, I guarantee you will be blessed.
Holy Saint Nicholas, pray to God for us!
