For the past 4 years, I have taken a trip with friends at this time of year. A trip for Christmas shopping, and for the chance to enjoy some time with friends.
Today, I leave early for Germany, to a cold but festive place. I plan to buy things I don’t need, chat with my girlfriends, drink gluwein out in the open. I plan to laugh and to gossip.
I hope to see snow covered trees, buildings, hills and mountains. I hope to see and buy beautiful things.
I hope to return feeling at least a little Christmassy.
I will miss Master, but will look forward to seeing Him when I return. I have a feeling making Him embrace the whole Christmas thing will be a little more of a challenge. But then, I am always up for a challenge!
