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.”

Something Is Coming to Our World by Catherine Lawton
That Was the Best Christmas! by A.R. Cecil
Adore, Adore our Coming Lord—
of Almighty God
in a newborn Child—
a baby boy
who cries for us
to hold him close
then cradles us—
~Mary Harwell Sayler
