So much to write at the moment - hopefully this will be the start of regular blogging!
Just been to a communion meal with some friends to think about Christmas etc. Having also been on a retreat earlier this week with some other friends I'm really conscious of just how unique a lead up to Christmas I'm having. It occured to me the other day that it doesn't in any way feel like Christmas - but it does very much feel like I'm remembering Jesus' birth and things around that. So I'm extremely conscious of the real celebration but have hardly been around all the other sutff!
I kind of feel like that has been a real privelege and I'm heaps thankful for it.
It is feeling like the most real, special Christmas time I have ever had!
