Do you want to build a Snowman? or something?

Want to join me on a journey of advent? A journey of setting aside some time daily to read the scriptures, spend time with your families, and get ready for the Christmas Holidays in a balanced frame of mind - is that even possible? Well I sure hope it is... and I'm planning to try it.

Each day I will post an advent CHRISTmas Advent Scripture Print, as well as a Christmas CHEER Holiday Print-  hopefully with a smattering of Christmas posts in between!

Feel free to print them off and follow along, after 25 days you will have 2 collections of my Rustic Advent Calendar :) Use them year after year!

Advent will start December 1st! I can't wait to share this journey with you! Before we get started print off the activity file (below), cut them out, and put them in a jar... pull one out each day and do the activity on it with your family, roommate, mom, boyfriend, best friend, whomever you choose :)

Do you ever get overwhelmed with a feeling that things are changing? That dreams are loading, that something is going to happen?

I do, and then I am in a waiting period to see what happens. Sometimes it comes fast, sometimes it comes slow... very slowly.

I'm in that Dream period right now, where my mind is racing a mile a minute, trying to figure it all out, and waiting patiently all at the same time. It's a real place. I live in this space a lot, and it can be unsettling, the only thing that I do I know, is- I don't have to know, I just have to trust. Knowing that keeps me sane in this time and space...

Do you ever feel that? How do you just wait, relax into the chaos, and let those dreams load?
Share the love,
M.

I know, I know, my American friends are still waiting for Thanksgiving, but my Canadian friends are all up decorating for Christmas- and so have I.

Here in Vietnam we miss the markers for Christmas, the time doesn't change, sun rises at 5:30 am, and starts to set about 12 hours later, the weather doesn't change (or at least not enough for me to think about the holidays, the Vietnamese all start wearing sweaters and coats... but it is still 32 degrees celsius, so I probably won't be donning a new winter jacket any time soon.)

It is a weird feeling, and I am trying to ward off nostalgia, because that will make me sad, and then I will get into a funk, and I will spend too much time wishing for what isn't, and missing the 'what is right now'. So I am trying to celebrate with gusto, and enjoy where we are in the moment, and just enjoy the moment. It is easier said than done.

But in light of all of that, I have decorated for Christmas! When we showed up in March, we had 3 suitcases and 2 boxes for a two year stay in Vietnam. In those boxes were my favourite Christmas ornaments tucked away, waiting for the special day to unpack them, and enjoy them. If I'm being honest with you, I've unpacked them a few times and looked at them, and got all nostalgic, and repacked them, waiting for the moment... waiting to put them up. Now they are all up, and I love staring at my tree... it makes me really happy, and I have stories for all of my ornaments, and I have new ornaments that I bought here, which in a few years down the road I will look at and be over come by nostalgia, and they too will have stories.

It's hard to sit in the moment and enjoy, we often find ourselves waiting for what is next, instead of just doing, being, enjoying what is now. It is a lesson I learn daily, a lesson I have to practice daily, I am a dreamer, I can see into the future to what I want... but I have to reign myself in, slow myself down, and just breathe in the moment.

Do you get ahead of yourself in life? Do you find it hard to stop, breathe, be in the moment?

M.
