Careful…

jesus_is_coming_35_button

Admit it…. you laughed.

So did I.

But then I stopped, and paused to reflect.

Mirror, Mirror on the wall

Who’s the busiest of them all?

Busy! Busy! Busy!

Busy! Busy! Busy!

Guilty as charged.

I am trying to set aside some quiet moments this season to reflect on why we celebrate Christmas, why we look for the perfect gift for someone we love.  I am trying to be intentional about Advent, this season of preparation. Today we light the “peace” candle on the Advent wreath.

Hope. Peace. Joy. Love.

In the midst of everything happening in our nation and in the world, I need the focus of Advent more than ever.   Peace be with you.

  1. Looking forward to some o’ that Advent joy! I do love Advent, with it’s almost but not quite quality. Also, it forces me to look at the darkness. If I don’t look at the darkness will I recognize the quality of the light that comes to dispel it?

  2. I decided this year I wouldn’t do anything I didn’t want to do for Christmas–burning myself out with “busy” is NOT what God wants from me! So I admit it. I didn’t bake a single cookie, I bought only gifts I wanted to give, I decorated until I was satisfied and left the rest sit in boxes or boxed it up to give away. Man, did that help me have more peace of mind to focus on what was important this Christmas. Good advice;)
