Well, today is the start of Advent, a time of hope and preparation for what is to come. Even more important in this challenging year. I wonder what will be behind each window on my advent calendar (besides chocolate!) Exciting!

Having said the above about hope I have struggled to forgive myself for a careless mistake I made this afternoon; carelessness being something I am very prone to. Do you ever get frustrated with yourself? But nevertheless the star of Bethlehem shines in the east and calls wise people to seek the child who brings light in the darkness and is the King to come.

In all the contradictions of this year and with Christmas being so close a rose has bloomed in my garden. A strange in between time we are in…

It’s a bit like that with 60@60. Virtually all the calendars are gone but that’s the current main big activity nearly complete. I keep doing more recipes and looking for more bird species. I’ve now bought a bird table but no success yet. I am working away at 60 Random Acts of kindness too.

I am looking ahead to new activities I can do. Quite a few ideas… If you are stuck thinking of Christmas presents I may also put a few things out there where you can make a specific support a persecuted Christian for Christmas.

Looking ahead a 60’s quiz is in there as an option but is Christmas the right time or is the new year better? Any feedback on this or anything else you’d like to see me do?

Have a good few days and enjoy your advent calendar chocolate!

Turning 60 is a door to a new decade. I want to use these years positively, starting with the next one. So I want it to be a year of trying different things as well as familiar one and to do a couple of challenges. 60 things at 60 with the aim of raising £6 000 for the charity Open Doors, serving persecuted Christians around the world, many who live with very little. Would you be part of the adventure with me?
