Advent begins today. I hope you are spending this Sunday of HOPE with family and friends. Maybe you will worship in a formal setting, or maybe you will simply sit quietly with a cup of coffee and revisit the blessings from your Thanksgiving celebration. Perhaps you are reeling from the aftershock of Black Friday, or you might be enthusiastically cheering your favorite NFL team to victory. Maybe you’ll do all of the above. Whatever this day brings, my hope is that it finds you in a spirit of anticipation for the special days ahead.
I love that Advent begins with Hope Sunday and follows so closely on the heels of Thanksgiving. Hope is sometimes difficult to muster, but gratitude breeds hope. God’s perfect timing.
My HOPE for you this week and throughout Advent is that you find ways to make your observance personal and then share it with others. What is your HOPE for the upcoming holiday season?
