Trying to focus on Joy during this Season.  It is easy to get sidetracked and start to panic about the busyness of the days.  For the last few years we have done a Jesse Tree Advent from Holy Experience.  We have loved it so much.  It helps us to focus on the "Reason for the Season."

The first picture is of some bokeh on a house in our neighborhood.  I used a texture to give it a different look. The second and the third are evidence of our rain that we received the last few days.  Oh, I love the rain.  The fourth picture is of the Jesse Tree ornaments that we put on the tree everyday.  And, the last is our Christmas tree with delicious looking bokeh.  My next attempt of bokeh will be with a focused figure in front of it.  I need to take the time over the weekend to play around with my camera.

Many Blessings,


  1. that first picture happens to be mine mom......

    1. oops! dear girlie! I did forget to tell EVERYONE that the first picture is YOURS! I did add the texture though! : )

  2. LOL on your daughter's comment!

    Love the bokeh. I was playing with it today... I love bokeh.

    We do the Jesse Tree too... but we have been bad this year keeping up.
