PREPARATIONS FOR THE KING!!
Waiting, hoping, expecting…
There are so many things to do to get ready–we must have everything just right… and they won’t be “just right” unless, among all the busy-busy, we take some on-purpose moments of sitting down and listening. So each week, we’re going to have a different theme to “listen about”. This first week the theme will be HOPE.
He’s coming! Advent = “coming”.
Officially, Advent is the 4 Sundays before Christmas, making the first Sunday of Advent NEXT Sunday, Dec. 2/07. But that would only be 3 weeks and a few days before, and we need 4 whole weeks before Christmas for all our Advent preparations; so we (The Mom & I) consider today to be the first Sunday of Advent. It’s actually “Christ the King” Sunday, the last day of the church calendar.
“When they see me waiting, expecting your Word,
those who fear you will take heart and be glad.”
(from Psalm 119)
