Three candles on the third Advent Sunday. JOY is the candle today...the joy of the Lord is our strength. How could we continue without the joy of Christ, filling us with hope and strength to face each new day...each new year? Amidst trails and tribulations...there is always...always the JOY of the Lord abiding in the hearts of the redeemed.....Christ our Redeemer.....Immanuel...God with us, sustaining us.....filling us with joy...his joy. The joy of God with us.....Jesus!
Do not grieve for the joy of the Lord is your strength. Neh. 8:10
