The first week of Advent always creeps up on me. One year, after spending hours searching for the Advent wreath but coming up empty handed, I was forced to improvise.
|Shot of grace, anyone?|
|First week of Advent|
We'll continue to read the Jesse Tree story when we gather as a family at the end of each day. We'll recall the day's events and share our hopes for tomorrow. We'll also countdown to one of the holiest of days on the calendar too. In between prayers, reflections and a countdown to the 25th, we'll say prayers of thanksgiving, too. We'll ask for continued blessings for the people we hold in our thoughts and hearts.
The thought of continued blessings keeps me hopeful. I pray it does for you as well.
