Advent. It is a fairly new concept in my world. As a family and church we did not go through Advent before Christmas.
I am learning about this time of Advent a little more each year, taking time to reflect on the birth of my Savior, Jesus. A few weeks ago I thought of the verse Luke 2:19. It has resounded loudly in my heart.
My prayer for us all is that during this time of reflection leading up to Christmas we will treasure and ponder the gift that was given by God in the birth of our Savior, Jesus.
