So one giant leap into Advent, and here we are! I have to admit, it seems no matter how much I try, I always seem to get caught up in the craziness and find myself at Christmas having not experienced the "glorious expectation" of His coming. I spend so much time running around it zooms by with me not really doing anything much extra to prepare my heart. Oh, I have good intentions, but between shopping and cooking and guests etc, the time just passes.
I am hoping this year is different. So, here I am, the 1st Sunday of Advent, I actually am hoping to give Him my undivided attention and "prepare the way" for His birth in my heart, and I am excited with just the thought of it.
So, I am off to a good start.
I do not know what is going to happen, but day by day I hope to meditate on the glorious expectation of His birth, growing more excited as each day we come closer to the birth of Mercy Himself, which saved me from my sins.
