Come, Lord Jesus!
Since hearing the homily during the first Sunday in Advent, this little prayer aspiration has been my mantra for the past 4 weeks of Advent..."Come, Lord Jesus!"
It He has helped me survive during times of holiday stress and Advent sufferings to bear...In reality, it's the reality that He really is here with us and all we need to do is call out His name...And know wherever He is, He'll come running... Just like the old James Taylor song:) And He will come again in glory.
So we're finally here. Advent closes tomorrow and the Christmas season is upon us...Christmas is just beginning in the life of our faith. Christmas is not over. I am so thankful for that, grateful to be Catholic. There's more time. Time to bake the cookies I didn't get to, time to enjoy the decorations and Jesus in the manger, time to get back to my daily Magnificat readings that have been neglected in the bustling activity, time to reflect on the grace of God that appeared, time to dwell on the word made flesh, time to give glory to our Savior...Come, Lord Jesus!
Here are a few ideas for celebrating a Catholic 12 Days of Christmas.
I'm hoping to grab some time to blog hop and wish all of you a very blessed and Merry Christmas. Until I make my rounds, I am thankful for all of you friends here. Each of you inspire me to live my faith stronger and better with each passing year.
God bless you all as we celebrate the Good News...To us is born a Savior! Together, we look forward in joy to the coming of the Lord.
+Merry Christmas From Our Family To Yours+
