“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests” Luke 2:14.
Remember the theme for LWML Sunday? It was “Be Ready In Season and Out of Season.” It’s Advent Season and it’s our time to prepare for the celebration of Christmas.
No, I’m not talking about decorating your home, or decorating your tree. Don’t think about the Christmas cards you want to send or the gifts you want to buy. Don’t think about the cookies you want to bake. So many things to think about, but are you ready for Christmas?
Advent season gives us the opportunity to look back at the miracle and joy of Christ’s birth. Advent season gives us the opportunity to look forward to the miracle of Christ coming again.
Find some quiet time for yourself, your Bible, and your thoughts. If you’re blessed to sit in the glow of a decorated Christmas tree and meditate on the birth of Christ, enjoy that special time. If you’re blessed to sit by a box of ornaments waiting to go on the tree; take time to meditate on God’s gift to you of a babe born in the manger and know the peace and joy found there.
Christ was born for you and me. We are blessed children of God and it’s the season to bask in the glow of Christ’s love.
