Have you been as busy as me? Usually a last minute person, this year we have been getting our supplies, decorations, and Christmas lights out before Thanksgiving. And still, the first day of the Advent season has come so quickly that I am flying around working to keep pace.
Today we will set our log, place all the candles in place, and hopefully print off copies of Christmas carols for the season.
It is appropriate to choose a theme of thanks this year, as this is the way we usher in God’s presence:
[box] Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise!
Do you have your Advent calendars? Oh no, I must set up mine… it is one of the decorations that I forgot. But I am more than ready for the beauty of meditating on God, and the wonderful gift of Jesus. Let us never take for granted how great a salvation our Father in Heaven has provided.
His gospel is to embrace mankind with the good news of Christ. Let us have glad hearts and begin with our first candle lit with hope.
