Advent... He's coming!

 Jesus came as an infant the first time 
and is coming again to reign as King!
We are anticipating His arrival.
Preparing.  Longing.  Yearning.  Hoping.
There is a time for grieving on Good Friday.  
There is a time for rejoicing on Resurrection Sunday.  
There is a time for eager preparation on Advent.
 It's the time to give.  It's the time to bake.
It's the time to decorate.  It's the time to love.
 I am so humbled that Jesus was born so that I might have life.
He knew my sins and died for me.
 God's grace drew me to Him, 
 His love makes me whole.

PTL! Looking forward to another joyful holiday season! Just got the tree up today! David's lamenting about the (small) size of the stockings so I guess I'll have to take care of that. :) Your decorations look great, as always!
