At The Parsonage – Preparing for Advent

Whoever planned this “extra week” before Advent begins, Thank You! It’s been nice to have time to get a few things done before Advent was all in my face. Especially with being so sick all last weekend and still recovering the last few days. I’m grateful to have found some energy to get moving on the preparations and also get a bit of decorating done.

I was excited when this print came in the mail. Ordered from  I’ve used this site for many of the prints I have around my home. I frame them myself and have found so many great frames at Walmart for el cheapo!


Advent Is For Waiting

Every year I take some time to contemplate Advent. How will we observe it this year? What did we enjoy last year? What is it that I want the babies to learn from this season?

There is such variety in the ways that different families approach the various Holidays. I like hearing what others do especially for Christmas and for Easter. Each family has its traditions. They are handed down, some perhaps through generations, some no one remembers where they came from while others have been carefully developed. And there are those where traditions never entered family life even during the holidays.


St. Elizabeth of Hungary

St. Elizabeth of Hungary, November 19th. Here’s a bit of a controversial saint. I save the controversial bits for another year and think on the princess and mother who put aside her own wealth and comforts to feed the poor and create a place they could come for medical attention.
