"The birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus means that one day everything sad will come untrue." -JR Tolkien.

This is great to read often. First day of Advent -
Advent 2023- Begins on Dec 3, Sunday and ends on Dec 24. The 4 Sundays of Advent focus on a different theme each week. They are - hope, love, joy, and peace – which are particular themes from the life of Christ. Advent also serves as the anticipation leading up to events of the Christ's birth. (Dec 25).
The Advent theme wreath first appeared in Germany in 1839 by a Lutheran minister who was working at a mission for children. The circle of the wreath reminds of us God's unending love and the life He made possible for us – the eternal life. The advent wreath first began as having 20 smaller red candles, one to be lighted for each day of the week, and 4 large white candles, to be lit one on each Sunday. Today in many churches, they use 4 purple candles, and one larger white candle, or three purple, one rose and one larger white candle. The three or four purple candles represent the tradition of hope, faith, joy and peace. The rose candle is lit on the 3rd Sunday. The white candle is lit to celebrate Jesus' birth. However, many candles are often used in other traditions, all four candles are blue, or white.
Advent is celebrated by a variety of denominations that are Christian. These include Roman Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox.

Advent prayer-
This Advent, Lord, come to the manger of my heart.
Fill me with Your presence from the very start.
As I prepare for the holidays and gifts to be given,
Remind me of the gift You gave when You sent Your Son from Heaven.
The first Christmas gift, it was the greatest gift ever.
You came as a baby born in a manger.
Wrapped like the gifts I find under my tree,
Waiting to be opened, to reveal Your love to me.
Restore to me the wonder that came with Jesus' birth,
When He left the riches of Heaven and wrapped Himself in rags of earth.
Immanuel, God with us, Your presence came that night.
And angels announced, "Into your darkness, God brings His Light."
"Do not be afraid," they said, to shepherds in the field.
Speak to my heart today, Lord, and help me to yield.
Make me like those shepherd boys, obedient to Your call.
Setting distractions and worries aside, to You I surrender them all.
Surround me with Your presence, Lord, I long to hear Your voice.
Clear my mind of countless concerns and all the holiday noise.
Slow me down this Christmas, let me not be in a rush.
In the midst of parties and planning, I want to feel Your hush.
This Christmas, Jesus, come to the manger of my heart.
Invade my soul like Bethlehem, bringing peace to every part.
Dwell within and around me, as I unwrap Your presence each day.
Keep me close to You, Lord. It's in Your wonderful Name I pray.
