The Candle of Hope
Saint Andrew's Day

It's Not What ....

How are you this Monday?

It's November and here in the northern hemisphere winter appears to be upon us. In Jersey, it's been a wild and raw weekend. Storm Arwen hit the British Isles bringing gale force winds and, in some areas, devastation in its wake. And parts of the UK have snow already!

It's easy at times like this just to want to hunker down, stay indoors, hibernate. This time of year can make you feel less optimistic, less hopeful. I know that's the case for me anyway. What is it about the cold and dark mornings that makes you feel less than 'get up and go'?

But there is light in the darkness.

We're now in the season of Advent, the month-long run up to Christmas, which is a lovely time for us to look forward with anticipation and to raise our spirit and to change our mindset. To see life differently.

The theme for the first week of Advent (which began yesterday) is HOPE.

So if you need a little hope and encouragement to start your week ... here's something that might help.

Have a great day everyone!

It's not what you do
