Today we’re celebrating the Second Sunday of Advent – remembering the Love that God gave to the world with the birth of His Son.
I’m sure that this birth was nowhere near as glamorous as we see depicted in pictures on calendars and Christmas cards (and almost certainly had no snow – we are talking about Bethlehem in Israel after all).
But glamor or no, snow or no, warm or cold, certainly no comforts for mother or baby, in a time of Roman rule and oppression – this little Baby was BORN because God loves the world and all of its people. He grew to LIVE God’s love in actuality – and to DIE for love of all mankind for eternity.
Celebrate LOVE …………. today and everyday.
Happy Advent! Blessings, Peg
