Thanksgiving to Christmas

Our thanksgiving is over and now let the Advent season begin.

Today is the first Sunday in Advent and we lit the first candle of Hope. Advent is a Latin word meaning, "the coming" and these 4 weeks before Christmas we try and think about what the coming of the baby Jesus means to us as well as looking forward to His future return as King of Kings.
Hope, Peace, Joy and Love to all of you this holiday season.

  1. Great pictures. Our non-denominational church doesn't do anything with the church calendar. We used to go to an Episcopal church and that's the one thing I miss. Our last Episcopal church started the Advent season off with little figurines of Mary, Joseph and their donkey at the back of the church. Each succeeding Sunday they were moved closer to the front where, on Christmas Eve they were in the stable with baby Jesus in the manger. It was a nice tradition.

    Betty and I still hold the church calendar in our hearts.

    Thanks for sharing.
