This coming Sunday will begin Advent in my home. I only started observing this tradition a few years ago,but Oh, how I wish I had knew of this when my children were small. Our church doesn't teach advent, but I happen to think its a wonderful thing. It keeps one focused on the very true meaning of the Christmas season....tis Christ birthday celebration after all! I find myself getting more excited about putting together the advent wreath this year,more so....than putting up the Christmas tree. I have the candles ready, and while I laid in bed last night...I was thinking of just how I would to assemble it this year. I am adding a fifth candle ...the Jesus candle, which will burn all day Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I will be making sure it is in the form of a (circle)as well, representing ....God...no beginning ...no end...ever lasting...he was..he is, and always shall be! Father, son and Holy Ghost!
