A second (possibly even later) Pause in Advent

This is our Advent calendar. For the last few years we have filled each pocket with both a sweet and a challenge. The latter are vaguely along the lines of random acts of kindness: so far I have had to feed the birds, give my teacher the sweet and wish her happy Advent, and phone someone who lives far away.

Earlier this week Jo's challenge was to write a Christmas poem, so without further ado, here is our strawberry reflection for this week. (He also bakes!)

Winter is coming
Christmas's dawn
He may be in Heaven
But he's not gone
He's lifting our spirits
Stopping the suns
And his name
It is Jesus

He may be in Heaven, but He's not gone :-) Your sun, and that Sun, are wonderful and mysterious.

Blessed Advent! One is never late to this sort of thing!!

A sweet and a challenge... I'll have to start thinking of them now for next year. Thanks for the idea.
