On Fasting...and Slowing (and 3 AWESOME Ways to Prepare for the Holidays!)

Uncategorized Nov 25, 2014

I love Christmas!

I love everything about it, especially the way it draws me into “the sacrament of the present moment” with one giant, swirling sensory swoosh!

I love the bright beauty of the festive lights as they warm, wink, and whisper cheer into an otherwise cold and bleak Saskatchewan December night…

I love the sounds, smells, and tastes of Christmas — the carols I learned to sing even before I learned to speak, the scent of pine, and those mouth-watering, once-a-year cultural delectables shared with family and friends…

So, if the truth be told, yes,”My name is Marian.  I am an out-of-control shopping cart voyeur”!
