For me, Advent is synonymous with "joy."
I find joy in the anticipation and preparations;
Joy in the music, lights and decorations.
Joy in the plans to be with family and friends
Joy in the giving to others in need;
Joy in selecting a gift that will bring delight to another.
All this joy comes to me and to you because our God loves
loves us so much that He sent his Son, Jesus, to be one with us,
one of us, one for us. It is an Advent joy and a year-round joy.
