The first light of Advent is the light of stone–.
Stones that live in crystals, seashells, and bones.
The second light of Advent is the light of plants–
Plants that reach up to the sun and in the breezes dance.
The third light of Advent is the light of beasts–
All await the birth, from the greatest and in least.
The fourth light of Advent is the light of humankind–
The light of hope that we may learn to love and understand.” –Rudolph Steiner
I love this poem and it reminds what the season is truly about. Now is a time for us as mother’s to be still and share the real beauty of Advent with our little ones. Don’t get hung up on what others are doing; bring to your family what you feel is the true meaning of the holiday. Deep Breath out, now go and enjoy it!
Wishing you all a blessed Advent Season.
