Contrary to what 24-hour Christmas radio wants us to believe, Christmas has not actually arrived (not sure I can handle hearing Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" ad nauseam). After all, it's not Christmas...it's Advent!!
Let us prepare our souls for Christmas with this prayer:
God of Love,
Your son, Jesus, is your greatest gift to us.
He is a sign of your love.
Help us walk in that love during the weeks of Advent,
As we wait and prepare for His coming.
We pray in the name of Jesus, our Savior. Amen.
