Today is the third Sunday of Advent. We light the pink candle of the advent wreath today.
Not sure why it's the pink one today, and not at the beginning or the end. Do you?
Found out at mass that the third Sunday is for JOY. Our preparations are mostly over and we look forward with JOY to the 'reason for the season'. I also thought the following was cute from the Homily:
J = Jesus ~ put Jesus first
O = Others ~put Others second
Y = Yourself ~ put Yourself Third
Got a busy day planned, mass then brunch with the girls, then long dog walk, then dinner and spending some time with my son who came home last night for a short Christmas break.
Tomorrow is a big house cleaning day, though I don't think I will get it all done in one day. Tuesday is shopping. Wednesday is hair appointment, party at night and more house cleaning or shopping during the day. Thursday is staff luncheon and maybe comedy club at night ~ I got 4 free tickets at our IT Christmas party. That is Nurse-a-baby's last day of exams so she wants to go out with her friends. I want to take Pool Boy, Mr. Philosopher and maybe DQ girl since Nurse-a-baby has other plans.
It's going to be a busy but fun week!
Have a good day internets! You rock~!
