Yesterday morning we lit the first candle on the Advent wreath during morning prayers in our church and in the evening we did the same at home. Lighting that candle in community and at home marks for us a period of reflection and preparation for the Christmas season and the celebration of the birth of Jesus. My hope is that during the next few weeks, when life could become full of extra activity, I will be ever mindful of the reason for the season.
For with You is the fountain of Life; in Your Light we see light.
Psalm 36: 8-9
