The children loved the Advent walk this evening. It was calm and peaceful. I loved to see the light of the candles flickering as they walked the spiral outside. Brogan decorated a lovely candle with bees wax colours. We made a lovely wreath of pine needles, bay leaf , holly and cinnamon. I decided to follow the tradition of purple candles as it was the colour of royalty. It is the season of the coming of the king. The symbolism of the candles are ... First candle- Hope. Second - Love. Third - joy. Fourth- peace. I look forward to the three Sundays ahead.
