Peace

I failed to mention in last weeks post that the first Candle of advent symbolizes Hope, or a period of waiting for The birth of Jesus and His return someday. The second Sunday of Advent we light the peace candle and prepare our hearts for the Christ Child. I am going to concentrate on having peace with my fellow man this week. I have caught myself losing a bit of my "Christmas Spirit" this week as I rushed around and fought with crazy drivers and holiday traffic. (Why is it that everyone is so much more agressive driving this time of year?) I can't let the hustle and bustle take away my peace, and I need to lean on God when I feel myself losing it! This week I wish you all the peace of God that passes all understanding. It is peace that only God can give us.

  5. Oh, Kathy, I'm just smiling. I thought the same thing yesterday as I was in Target, caught behind a young chicky girl yacking on her cell phone walking sooooo slow, and it seemed each time I moved to the left or right she did as well. I was sooooo irritated...and then I thought, this is Christmas, Alexandra, knock it off. I was still irritated though. :)

  8. Yes, I have been talking to others and we too have been trying to focus on Christ and all He is for us. Trying to make Christmas more simple and more beautiful because of glorying in Him.
