reasons not to dust


If you look closely at this photo you will notice that I haven’t dusted around the nativity for at least all of December (too many ornaments to lift, people!)

But I love the little fingerprints in the dust at the edge. It means little hands have been reaching out to touch the key players in the nativity. It means little eyes have been taking in the scene. It means little mouths have been saying “that’s baby Jesus, and his mum Mary, and his dad Joseph”. It means little hearts have been absorbing the story.

And for all of that I am more than willing to let the world know that I haven’t dusted for a month!

Merry Christmas everyone,
