Day 29 - thankful for Advent, a season of preparation and anticipation.
Advent like it’s cousin Lent, is a season for prayer and reformation of our hearts. Since it comes of winter time, fire is a fitting sign to help us celebrate Advent. If Christ is to come more fully in our lives this Christmas, If God is to become really incarnate for us, the fire will have to be present in our prayer. Our worship and devotions will have to stoke the kind of fire in our souls that can truly cleanse our hearts. Ours is a great responsibility not to waste this Advent time.
Before the end of my Thankful posts and the end of November, I wanted to play along with the THANKFUL Picture Photo Hunt that was suggested by one of our fellow bloggers, Martha, at Seaside Simplicity.
Love all around us
This December I will be bringing you everything Christmas!
The Lord is coming, always coming. When you have ears to hear and eyes to see, you will recognize him at any moment of your life. Life is Advent; life is recognizing the coming of the Lord.
Note I had wanted to share pictures from Yesterday's family feast but blogger won't let me add new pictures so I had to make do with the ones from the google Albums archive.
