We are in the Advent season,
a time of waiting, a time of preparation,
a time of hoping.
"Jesus, may I SEE You more fully
this Advent season."
This is my prayer.
It is quite difficult, especially for me,
not to be caught up in the frenzy
of the Christmas season.
We have several gift shops
and ever since I can remember
we have always been so busy
taking care of the stocks in the stores
so that we will have good sales.
How do I prepare my heart for
the coming of the King of Kings?
"Beware that your hearts do not become drowsy
from the anxieties of daily life."
Yesterday at mass,
Father Herb said we should be like
MILES CHRISTI, a soldier of Christ.
We should be spiritually fit,
free and not enslaved
to many things the world offers-
like cellphones, and email, shopping
and watching all the latest movies!
"Only say the Word and I will be healed."
Only Jesus is our Hope.
Only He can free us.
Only He can heal us.
Let me see You more fully
this season, Lord!
Every week I choose one wonderful
visitor who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.
I know how much time and effort
it takes to leave a comment!
and I appreciate that soooo much!
