Advent is just around the corner
Can´t believe that 2009 is breathing its last few breaths before 2010 starts! Advent is just around the corner and while I look forward to Christmas (and my birthday), I can´t elude the thought that the year is drawing to a close!
Makes me wonder what I have accomplis-hed this year... **Shall save it for another entry**
Anyway, we helped to sell Advent wreaths in church yesterday. Its all for a good purpose really. The proceeds go towards feeding and educating children in Africa, JAM - an international, non-profit organisation that my church has adopted.
I´ve always been cautious of companies like these, after all the bad publicity we´ve heard of charities absconding with millions of philanthropic money.
However, since the wife of our head pastor herself oversees the operations of JAM in Germany, I´m more than willing to support this organisation. 42€ is all it takes to feed a child for 1 year. For more information, please click here.
There´s this really talented lady from our region who spearheads the entire "Basteln Aktion" - Anybody with time and 2 hands would be taught how to make these wreaths from scratch. Yeah, she´s that talented!
This would be my 4th Christmas in Germany and I´ve always wanted to try my hand at making these things but have never got down to doing it! Well, there´s always 2010! Hahah.
That´s my sweetie doing what he does best! Being the cashier!
That´s me and a Greek friend of mine....just decided to do a spontaneous shot, so I have a photo of what I wore! hahaha.
