Christmas Past

Here's a bit of what last month looked like here. We had a small get-together at the Cincinnati Museum Center with local unschooling families and a met up there a couple more times with our friends, Amie, Sam, & Eric. We went to a really fun charity carnival set up by some homeschool friends (Sara and her boys, Blake & Noah)at their house, and met some new friends there as well. Riley and Maya went to their last pottery class and brought home their abundant projects from previous classes over the last couple of months. There was lots of cleaning and baking and decorating and prepping for Christmas day.

Christmas Morning

I actually woke up before everyone else and had time to fill the house with candlelight and to spend a long time reflecting, meditating...

"For my heart has become the sacred crib
The birthing place of God-among-us."

--Edward Hays, Prayers for a Planetary Pilgrim

And then the celebrating began

"...a feast for the young of heart,
a feast for finding beneath the tree
gifts to surprise and delight the eternal child."

--Edward Hays, Prayers for a Planetary Pilgrim

"Peace on Earth and justice for all
will only become manifest in our lives
when enough of your sons and daughters
awaken to your divine design
that has made each of us
an emerging Emmanuel."

--Edward Hays, Prayers for a Planetary Pilgrim

Peace & Love to You All
