Another winter closing in,
Dark evenings growing colder.
Violet candles will soon be lit.
Each one preparing for
Throne of hay.
The Advent season is now here. This time of preparation and anticipation of the coming of Emmanuel is one of contemplation and focus on the spiritual rather than the material. We so often get caught up in the X-mas hype, that we loose focus on the Christ.
Let us keep our eyes on the manger.
