Today is the first Sunday of Advent!
I love Advent. I love counting down to the day of our Savior’s birth and thinking over that period of time about Mary and what she must have felt. I love the story of Mary going to visit Elizabeth and how John the Baptist, still in utero, jumped with joy to be near the Christ. I love to think of Joseph and how hard it must have been for him to accept God’s use of his betrothed in this way – and what he must have thought of the prospect of becoming the earthly father of the Messiah. And I love the anticipation that’s in the air and the expression of that in the Advent carols like Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus and O Come O Come Emmanuel.
