In The Dark

So I was watching 7th Heaven tonight and all of a sudden, the tv turned off and I looked around the house. The electricity went out. Needless to say, I sat pretty much in complete darkness for about two hours. My aunt was at her book club and my uncle was at the YMCA. It was quite fun I must say. I lit some candles, listened to my Go Fish Christmas CD and just sat in the dark. Lots of fun...LOL! Now the electricity is back on and I am checking email and all that good stuff, but Im mad that I didnt get to see what happened the last half hour of 7th Heaven. Can anyone fill me in? But enough about that, tonight as I sat waiting in the dark for the lights to come back on, I couldnt help but think of the meaning of advent...waiting! Waiting for the birth of the Christ child. Guess there was just some nice symbolizing in the waiting for the lights to come on that reminded me of why I love advent so much!

  1. Tara...honey...do you have a flashlight?. I guess it was a good opportunity to think about the meaning of Advent. (If you don't have a flashlight, then get thee to a store and get one!!!)
