A really unique experience at the Christmas Eve service we attended at Bala United Church…Mum, my husband Steven, Lily & I. Halfway through the service Rev. Sue asked the congregation to look under our benches…if we find a bag we’re to put on the costumes hidden neatly inside so as to play the various roles in the Nativity narrated eloquently by my Mum & the Rev. As fate would have it Lily found herself an Angel and I a Shepherd. As our roles appeared in the story we found our way to the front of the wee, cosy Church…my daughter obviously gravitating to my lap ☺ kind laughter ensued.
The service culminated in the passing of fire lit from the Advent candles to each member where we in a quiet moment together shared the love of the season…for me a beautiful tradition to be part of with my family.
Today I find myself feeling a low mood…disconnected. Weather has been grey for over a week…and I suppose I’m a bit worn out from Xmas prep. I haven’t felt motivated to shoot and this bothers me. I just feel “off” and my posts here few which I also find strange. I miss my regular engagement here on WP. I know it will pass but for the moment I even feel down about feeling down especially as we’re meant to celebrate being together, the gaiety of the season. Nuts. I’ve felt so good of late, so light of spirit…I guess I wish I felt better.
