sweet little jewel i found on our Christmas table at B&N today...
Advent (from the Latin word adventus meaning "coming") is a season observed in many Western Christian churches, a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas.
i sat for a few minutes and took in the first chapter...
the theme was pretty simple and very profound i thought:
as believers, weary of the hype/commercialized season,
we should seek to celebrate the coming of Christ by
giving more, and
good words. very good words indeed.
