REFLECT – Someone recently shared with me a video clip of a soldier who had been overseas for many months returning home without his son knowing it and surprising him in his school’s cafeteria. I was in tears as I watched this boy, probably 11 or 12 years old, running with complete abandon into his father’s arms.
This Advent, the Lord is coming to us, and he can often surprise us with the ways he makes his presence known…especially when we’re open to seeing him.
SHARE – Maybe you could ask a friend, a co-worker, or someone in your family if they plan to do something special during Advent to prepare for Christmas, and what they might be thinking. Share with them what your plans are too. This could be a simple way to remind ourselves and others that something beautiful is about to begin that we don’t want to miss.
