During Advent Season we prepare because “Something is coming.” Decorations, food, presents, music, and many festivities are prepared and planned.

As Christians we prepare our inner lives also, for Christ to be born anew in our hearts.

Inspirational stories, devotional writings, and poetry help us quiet our spirits during hectic days of outward preparations and open our minds and hearts to deeply receive the beauty and wonder of “what is coming.”

That Was the Best Christmas! by A.R. Cecil

Adore, Adore our Coming Lord—

The greatness

of Almighty God

arriving

in a newborn Child—

a baby boy

named Jesus,

who cries for us

to hold him close

then cradles us—

the infants.

~Mary Harwell Sayler
