This is the first of probably two hundred pictures of our Christmas tree that I will put up. we decorated it with seashells from the beach here. I love it. Ok, here’s another one.
Also, tomorrow is the first Sunday in Advent. I believe that means it’s the first day in the liturgical calendar? The official start of the Christian year? I want to fast during Advent from something– something like television shows. I want to be less distracted by things of little worth. Kierkegaard’s epigraph in Sickness Unto Death:
Lord, give us weak eyes
for things of little worth,
and eyes clear-sighted
in all of your truth.
