Last night I was taken ill quite suddenly and that was the reason I dropped a picture with no explanation. I didn't really think much about it more than not wanting to miss a day but my Mother took me to task (in a genteel southern lady way that was very reminiscent of my Grannie Re) about not saying anything about the picture. So, for those of you keeping up at home yesterday's photo was a Lego helicopter that my son Sam made. Oh, and MacGyver was flying it. That boy has quite the vivid imagination!
My image for this the seventh day of DPP is a quick shot I grabbed after Vesper services. The kids love blowing out the Advent candles almost as much as they enjoy rushing the communion table on Sundays after the service for any bread that is left over. We don't have an official list of who gets to do it when but we do try to keep up with who has had a turn and who hasn't. It gets easier each week with more candles being lit. Tonight my beloved had two of the cutest helpers, don't you think?
