Joy is the serious business of heaven. (CS Lewis)

Well, it almost killed me, but last week’s busy-activity DID get done! You see, since we have whittled down our gift-giving, it mostly gets left until the “last minute”… so it was a longish day of shopping. AND I even had time to put together my favourite Christmas puzzles last week. There’s another one to do… maybe this week.

In fact, my busy-activity for this last week is mostly done already (wrapping), so I should have lots of time to work on the Christmas photos, and do the puzzle as well! And maybe even watch a movie or two. *happy smile*

OH–questions to think about for this week. Choose your poison:

  1. What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before?
  2. What date from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
  3. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
  4. What did you get really, really, really excited about?

I already know the answers for some of you, what with weddings and unexpected funerals. :(

That kind of leads into a quote from my Advent reading today, that I wanted to share with you:

If I am able to remember loneliness during joy, I might be able in the future to remember joy during loneliness and so be stronger to face it and help others face it. (Henri Nouwen)

“If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer.” (2 Corinthians 5:6)
