Contemplation for this week.
I had a big list, but I found that writing it down really inspired me to become a better person.
Things that I didn't normally think about , became more apparent to me the more I wrote.
Also this past week, some of us could choose a ticket from the Christmas tree in Church with a poor child or adults, sex and age written on it, and we were to go out and buy them a present, I thought that was a beautiful thought so I did it, I just made sure that I did not choose a teenager as I find them difficult to buy for.
So on Sunday we put our gifts under the tree, it made me feel really good actually, not because "I" did something, but because someone is going to get a present, who normally would not.
I'm also loving the candle lighting and prayers to do with the Advent wreath, mine looks a bit funny but it's still a wreath, I love the old traditions and try to keep them alive, besides I love candles too!
I'm certainly going to attempt being a better person and to stop thinking of myself most of the time. xxx
