Prepare our Hearts
The Season of Advent is here! This is this wonderful time of year when we begin to prepare for Christmas.
So, we put up our trees and wreaths and start to get the Christmas cards sent out. We buy gifts and think of how we will gather with family and friends.
But what we truly want to remember is the real meaning of this time of year. Jesus, the Son of God, is born in Bethlehem and we are daily graced with His presence in the world!
Whatever our plans may be in the next weeks, let’s not forget the “true reason for the season”….that is the Birth of our Savior and Redeemer!
Let us truly prepare our hearts to welcome the Newborn Christ child!
And let us continue to pray for one another.
