Fourth Advent Sunday
Today we get to light the fourth candle in our wreath! I'm all sorts of excited; it means Christmas is happening this week!! We've been putting the lights up out on the balcony, baking like crazy people, wrapping gifts, having guests stop by, shoveling snow, and oh the hype!!! Christmas is truly a celebration - and I love the Advent season to get us ready!
I love how the Advent readings are about telling the exciting back-story leading up to Christmas day. We've been following the story of two women and their unusual situations, and today we're hearing about the first woman's child (and here's what he grew up to be). I've posted weeks one, two and three, so now here's the set of readings for week four.
