Advent is a time of waiting, anticipation and preparing for the Birth of Christ. In the midst of this season, we all lead different lives that take us in all directions. Some of these are family oriented activities; some are individual aspirations; and some may be sickness or unusual or unexpected problems. But we continue to prepare because the Birth of Christ is the peace that we seek that gets us through the most difficult times in our lives. We reflect on the humble beginnings of the birth of Jesus and realize just what He did for us by coming into our lives two thousand years ago and continues to come into our lives every Christmas. So, follow through on your family gatherings, buy those special gifts, and decorate your homes. The Prince of Peace is once again coming into our lives.
