He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!
Thought: Advent is a wonderful time of year. Growing up we used an advent calendar that my Grandmother had made. It was shaped like a tree and we put a different ornament on it each day leading up to Christmas. As a family we also read simple devotions to go along with each day that my Grandfather had written.
Each year without fail we waited with anticipation the placement of that final ornament, even fighting over who got to put it up. After all, when the last ornament was up we could finally open our presents! It is with the excitement of a child that we now look towards Christmas and celebrate the arrival of the Christ child, and await His second coming to restore all of creation. Come Lord, quickly, come.
