Today is the first Sunday of Advent! Advent is about preparing our hearts. It is about anticipating the coming of Christ as the babe in the manger! It is good…it is helpful…it is necessary…for us to learn…or to relearn…to slow down and to anticipate the coming of Christ! Why is it important? Because…just as Jesus came to this world the first time…He will come again. We need to learn to anticipate HIS return!
