Winter descended upon us last Friday and since then we have received about ten inches of the delightful white stuff! With more coming tomorrow! It was minus 15 Celsius when I woke up this morning and it is only up to minus 13 now, at 11 am. For my lovely American friends, that translates to eight degrees Fahrenheit. It is chilly!!! Not cold, just chilly. It will be minus 40 at some point this Winter and then we can say that it's COLD!
Snow always somehow brings the Christmas spirit with it, don't you think?
I have put my Christmas village in the kitchen this year above my sideboard.
I am joining The Gypsy's Corner today for Three Or More. This is a great place to find recipes, Christmas decor and so much more today. Thanks to Tam for hosting it.
I'm looking forward to my grandchildren coming over, they always love to see my Christmas village displayed.
This will be my first Christmas in 33 years that I have not been with one of my children for Christmas. My two kids are getting together this year. My son is driving his family out to the state of Washington to have Christmas with my daughter and her family. My two step-daughters live on the West coast of BC and they will be together.
It is going to be very different around here. But, I will not let it dampen my spirits, I love the joy and serenity that envelopes us at this time of year and nothing will destroy that for me.
My peace comes from my relationship with God, not from circumstances.
So if everything is not as you would like it to be, I truly hope that you are able to step back from what's happening and find joy in the Christmas Season.
Jesus is the Reason for the Season
and he's the reason that I have Peace and Joy in my life all year round.
Love and Hugs,
