Hello, friends! Hope you have had a lovely day.
Each year I get an Advent Candle for home. In the past I have gotten taper candles to burn down. Then I have the problem of finding a candleholder it would fit into. This year I solved the problem by purchasing a pillar candle. I took one of my small plates and covered it with foil and then stood the candle on it. That way any wax that falls can be easily cleaned up and thrown away.
I've been taking a photo of it each night as it burns. Let me show you.
It started out being very tall.
I got the one with holly and ivy as the pattern.
Here it is on the first night as we began burning it.
It took quite a while to burn through the top section.
Finally it burned through the first day.
Each day it gets a little shorter. And so does the time before Christmas. Day 3 is gone.
So is Day 6.
And Day 7.
And Day 10. How quickly the time flies.
Day 16 has finished and tonight we are burning down day 18.
I looked at it tonight after we had finished our devotional reading and realized just how short it was. One week to Christmas. Almost nothing done. It doesn't feel like Christmas to me. I think because I've been so sick. I will be happy if I get anything done at this point. I hope that next year will be much better for me.
How are things going for you?
