Here are some pictures taken in the last few days – those kids love to help in the kitchen! Business is picking up for us here at La Taza Negra and we are roasting and baking just enough to stay ahead. We are slowly saying our goodbyes to all the family who came for the holidays… I will post pictures of our Christmas and New Year’s celebrations soon.
Epiphany was celebrated quietly at home, all of us piled in the big bed with our Bibles open to the story of the wise men and their gifts and St. John’s encouraging words:
This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. . . The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. . . The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
We stared at the candles burning brightly across the room, lighting up the play things and the piles of clothes, the pictures on the walls and the cough medicine by the bed. Lighting up little faces barely understanding the light in the darkness. It was a good way to start the year.
