Ma’s Christmas Tip for Today
On a clear night, find the bright North Star and recall the story of the Wise Men
Have you ever tried to count the stars in the sky? Go outside and look at the December sky. Imagine how masterful our Lord must be to have created such a masterpiece. The stars light our way at night just as Jesus lights our way in this world.
Maybe instead of counting the stars tonight, we could count the many times in our lives when God has been there for us in a time of need and thank Him
As you can see my wise men are not in the Nativity …they are over on my buffet top…traveling toward Christmas. The only ones there right now are the shepherds. Mary and Joseph are over on the table traveling toward the Nativity too. It’s nice to think about them traveling toward the Nativity which they’ll reach on Christmas Eve.
Advent is like a journey. If we take time to reflect awhile each day it helps us to realize more and more what a wonderful gift we have.
My busy weekend will soon begin. I’ve so much to do making gifts here at my house so I thought a little advent reflection was a good way to start the day.
I hope it helps you a little too.
