Today we lit the candle of peace on the Advent wreath. It has been a peaceful day of family and music. My husband and I read the narration and sang in the beautiful Cantata performed at our church. I read the passages about the birth of the long-awaited baby while holding my baby in my arms--she was hardly content being held by someone else when she could hear my voice over the mic! She cuddled in against me for the service, clutching (appropriately) her little lamb.
Afterward, began learning Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring on the violin.
