I hope we all are enjoying the Advent season and preparing our hearts for the celebration of Christ’s birth. Christ is Emmanuel: God with us. That is why we celebrate Christmas. We are no longer alone. Christ is with us.
Happy Advent. May you find some time for stillness, peace, reflection and most of all love. Enjoy the following thoughts I found here:
“Life is a constant Advent season: we are continually waiting to become, to discover, to complete, to fulfill. Hope, struggle, fear, expectation and fulfillment are all part of our Advent experience.
“The world is not as just, not as loving, not as whole as we know it can and should be. But the coming of Christ and his presence among us—as one of us—give us reason to live in hope: that light will shatter the darkness, that we can be liberated from our fears and prejudices, that we are never alone or abandoned.
“May this Advent season be a time for bringing hope, transformation and fulfillment into the Advent of our lives.”
