Waiting for Christmas

Thanks to my friend for the picture of her Advent Calendar
    It wasn't until a friend sent me a digital Advent Calendar that I re-discovered the joy of opening little windows. Though I started a couple days into it, I'm really enjoying this December tradition The second week of Advent is centered around hope. And as we look forward to the coming of the Lord, we have hope in him because he came to earth to redeem us.

     Since, my family will be moving shortly after Christmas, we aren't able to deck the house out in its usual holiday greenery. Thus having an Advent Calendar reminds me of the approaching day when we celebrate the arrival of Jesus. It feels too quick to honor his incarnation in the petty space of a week. A month, however, really draws out the reverence and allows time for devotion. I am joyfully awaiting the day of Christmas.

Have a lovely week!
