moving into the weekend with awe


… how to watch this and not be in absolute awe of God?

(Also. We have a guy here who leaves this tab open for the Live Cam. Who doesn’t want to catch the Northern Lights dancing and God showing off in real time?)

Cradle to the Cross Wreath — a 25 candle hole wooden wreath for every day of Advent till Christmas, with the silhouette of Mary on the Donkey, making her way to Bethlehem — keep company with Jesus,

anticipating the Light of His coming!

This and so much more at The Keeping Company
