Living in Advent Joy

My childhood friend Mrs. J. providentially lives close enough for what is becoming an annual Advent visit. Our friendship has always been a wide horizon of inspiration and adventure for me; when we were kids, this meant climbing steep heights and exploring depths, whether on trees, stages, or airplane trips to exciting places with our friends and families. Now she encourages and inspires me with every glimpse into her beautiful life as a mother.

Baby Heidi joined us in a baby way in evangelical cookie-baking last year; this year, this adorable little girl was grown up enough for a girl's night out to dinner and a play, followed by a fun visit to the library. As you can see, she is on to some joyous adventures of her own.
