And so it begins…today is the first Sunday of Advent (whether we’re ready or not.)
Advent is a time of preparation and joyful anticipation, of waiting and doing (while we work on that patience thing waiting.)
Advent is a journey of wonder and faith as we travel with Mary from Nazareth to the manger, risking all yet trusting God.
A journey toward new beginnings.
“Fear not, for I am with you. BE not afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness.” (Isaiah 41:10)
And so our Advent journey begins, as we must each day begin, again and again, walking the path of faith with Jesus.
grace, peace & (Advent-ish) beginnings

p.s. Virginia is once again plotting (& hoping) to do her post-a-day Advent gig. Realizing many friends and readers are of different faiths (& that it’s also an extremely busy time of the year) I hope that a quickie quote, photo, or Christmas meandering might spread a bit of joy and understanding around. Advent blessings to all!
