The last day of November is the second day of advent this year. Leaving one blogging theme (thankfulness) and moving into another one (Advent).
Mari sent me a link to a wonderful daily Advent email. You should check it out. http://www.unclutteredheart.org
Today's email Advent theme is Hope Thrives in Adversity. The daily photograph is of a dandelion growing in the crevice of a tree trunk. There's a two sentence prayer and a five word thought to think about during the day followed by a brief description of the picture and a question to reflect upon. You have the option to leave a comment about the reflection or just read what other people had to say. The email ends with a book suggestion for further reading and a short song you can listen to and learn. I highly recommend this. It's such a simple yet meaningful way to celebrate Advent daily as we anticipate the celebration of Jesus' birth.
PS--On an unrelated last day of November note, today I randomly said to a student, "Today is the last day of November." He randomly replied, "Yes, for this year anyway."
