Dec 16 #AdventWord#Rejoice - Gaudete! It's Gaudete Sunday and we are called to #Rejoice ! Regardless of what is going on in your life, think of one think for which you can #Rejoice , if nothing more than the love of Jesus Christ!
Dec 14 #AdventWord#Prune - Don't underestimate the need for a #Prune . Whether the fruit or the gardening activity, to #Prune results in some much needed cleansing, leading to growth, as the Christ Child approaches.
Dec 13 #AdventWord#Smooth - The brass requires firing and polishing in order to be #Smooth enough to see reflections. Discern what needs to be shed and polished #Smooth within you so that you can see the true you whom God has made.
Dec 12 #AdventWord#Rough - When life's journey is #Rough , the spiritual journey tends to get pushed aside. Yet, that spiritual moment helps get through the #Rough and busy December. Jesus stilled the #Rough seas; He can still your soul.
Dec 10 #AdventWord#Cry - John the Baptist's #Cry in the wilderness was a call to repentance. But sometimes your #Cry is a call for forgiveness or of pain. Journey with us through Advent toward He who takes away pain and suffering.
Dec 7 #AdventWord - The seeds of our experience of Jesus that we sow #sprout when they are ready, maybe not on our timescale. Share your story of faith and experience this Advent. There will be no #sprout without the planting!
Look down, O Lord, from your heavenly throne, and
illumine this #night with Your celestial brightness; that by
night as by day Your people may glorify Your holy Name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. #AdventWord
The craziness of December causes us to lose #focus on the true meaning of #Christmas . Reclaim your authority to make sound financial and calendar decisions, and let the Incarnate God help you #focus on what is important. #AdventWord
