CHRISTMAS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER
Yes it is that time of year again when we all go around like headless chickens doing this and that , all for a few days off, called Christmas. I have been organising the church Christmas carol service this year with gusto and enjoying evry minute of it. Of course there would not be any suprises if I told you about everything I intended for the evening. It will however be a merry one. With the shared supper afterwards, so thats bring along a little food and drink, that we all so enjoy. Where is this all happening? The Church of the Holy Spirit St.Austell, Kings Avenue at 7 .30pm on December 16th 2009.
We are a jolly lot and it is a must to get there good time to get a seat or space even, as we also have limited room.
Another thing I like to do as Christmas draws near is enjoy the christingle with the children on Chrismas Eve.
Today we have had Christmas lunch out , as a start of celbrations with the family, at our local five star hotel. Booked weeks ago we got a bit excited as it was special family time, with a chance to catch up in the relaxed atmosphere of Carlyon Bay Hotel.
The circle of continuity , made from different trees in my garden, including some red berried holly , was made in last week – end and already being enjoyed by the congregation all week. I do hope it last right up to the carol service. It should do but we never know. I did dress it with some ribbons and a dragon in gold for decoration. We learnt at the Chinese resturant that next year is year of the Tiger, which is a year of great strength, not a dragon , but that is a few years away from 2010.
I hope you all have your favorite things over the Christmas period. That you all share good health and have loved ones around you. Each year I light a candle for our relatives in spirit to join us , and another sending love and light to all those in need. You may like to join at 10am on Christmas morning and do the same in your home. A loving link to all those here and across the globe.
We are luky to have most of our family with us, sharing lunch , I am cooking on the day. There is Mother going to Bath with another branch of the family this year.
My sister and her family lives in Australia and they could well be on the beach and going for a barbie and swim.
Some friends in Spain, Tenerife, France, Portugal, America and aother places around the globe.
All linking in over this time.
Recently there have been news from friends of a baby in the new year, and three babies have been born over the last few weeks that have been connected with healing, and readings, that I have given.
My husband has a December brithday , and my son – in law is just in the new year as is my Daughter.
So we have loads of celebrations at this time of year.
Take care every one. Be nice to one another. Remember I did predict snow on Christmas day at BBC Radio Cornwall several months ago at the studio. It is getting colder by the day.
