Currier & Ives

We are living in such a Winter Wonderland!!! As I drive along the road, I often feel like I’m living in a Currier and Ives picture!!! Everyday!! The only difference is that I’m, thankfully, riding in a warm, motorized vehicle rather than being drawn in a one horse open sleigh!!! Here’s some pictures – hope you enjoy them!! Gwen 🙂

Santa Lucia Day

Happy Santa Lucia Day!!! This is a very important Swedish holiday. Even though the kids don’t get off from school, it is celebrated a fun way. Here are some pictures from Domkyrkan (Luleå Cathedral) where I went today to see the Lucia celebration. Jensina and Jiana were also there with their classes. It reminded me of going to the American Swedish Museum in Philly for the Lucia celebration in the US! Unfortunately, the celebration in Sweden today doesn’t have any real Christian aspects. If you would ask a Swede about it, they would probably tell you it is a celebration of light. It represents the longest night of the year and from here on out, the days keep getting longer until Mid-Summer’s Day in June. They know very little about Lucia or her love for God. Join with us in praying that the true Light of the world will become known here in Sweden for who He really is, their Savior and the Lover of their souls! Hope you enjoy the pictures. Gwen 🙂

Åsneexpressen, Jensina & Jiana’s First Swedish Christmas Play

Everyone did such a great job on the Christmas Play, Åsneexpressen (The Donkey Express)! They were all awesome!! It was a wonderful blend of fun, great music, and the wonderful account of Jesus, the Christ! They preformed it 5 times total, 3 of those times  for all the schools in Luleå!! We don’t have a video, but here is a slide show for you. We hope you enjoy it!!! Merry Christmas! God Jul! Gwen 🙂
