Advent

Advent

Still some weeks off ‘til glory day,
child and manger, God and hay.
Angels, shepherds, gifts and kings
wait impatient in the wings.
And me and mine ? What of us ?
Do we engage in all this fuss,
or do we, as we ought to do
use this time to prepare for You.

Oh, I love this! It expresses my own heart's prayer during this amazing season: "to prepare for You".

Wow I just love the photo with the sun light beamimg through...and I love the words you have written they express so much..It is sad that people use this season for all the wrong reasons...Instead of using it as we ought to do..
