It’s First Advent today – and so begins the season of anticipating the celebration of Christ’s birth.
In preparation, yesterday some of the Christmas decorating was done, including placing the Advent wreath prominently on a living room table. Each Sunday we will light a candle, and sit for a few moments contemplating ………. today the focus is Hope –
Hope in the promise of the Messiah, so anticipated all those years ago
Hope in the love of God in our world today
Hope in the future, when Christ will return
Happy First Advent Blessings, Peg
