An Adjustment Is Needed

Saturday, December 18, 2021


I almost forgot to share this year's little Advent candle.
I took this photo on December 1st.

Happy Saturday, My Lovelies!  I have to share a funny with you....I'm running out of room on my Advent calendar!  Check it out:

I'm almost out of room on my bar, and as of the taking of this photo, I have ten more Chrismons to hang!  

Sorry about the crappy photos and messy studio.  Yesterday was a day!

My only option is to make room by eliminating and consolidating a few of the other decorations so all 24 Chrismons will fit.  
I'll share my solution at some point next week!

Today's Advent Chrismon:

The Pentecostal flame is often representative of the Holy Spirit, based on the story in Acts 2:

"When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”  Acts 2:1-4

Today's scripture:

"... but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.  The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them.

Luke 2:19-20

Have a fun weekend, Lovelies!

Until next time...

  1. Happy Saturday, Ricki Jill! I hope this finds you resting well. I have an idea on the bar - hang ribbons in between just lower enough to make a stairstep display, no need to remove the end caps!

  2. I like Rita's idea to stagger the lengths! I love seeing these and i have never seen a countdown advent candle - love that! Enjoy this last week til Christmas and have a peaceful and joyous holiday

  3. Happy Saturday. Hope this finds you doing well. Maybe just hang them below the first row??? Not sure I know you will figure it out. xoxo

  4. Good luck with your project. Yes, Rita is right about staggering the lengths -- that would buy you a little bit of width.

  5. I think if you hang your Chrismons at different lengths with the ribbon you won't have to remove any of your decor on the bar. It's so pretty RJ. Lovely way to celebrate Advent.......and, I love the little candle.......
