Did you hear? My blog has officially moved to Wordpress! You will still find me at theredlettersblog.com, but this blogspot site will no longer be updated. I started this blog waaaay back in 2007. It's lived through a lot of life with me. I hope you've found glimpses of God and some good news here. I will keep writing and sharing, so please come and join me at the updated Red Letters! When you get there, make sure to subscribe, so you won't miss a thing.
It’s only the middle of November, but the journey to Christmas is already well underway. Is it just me, or have things gotten a little louder, a little faster, and a little crazier?
Are you feeling the pressure to create the “perfect Christmas?” Wondering how you ended up with a to-do list longer than Santa’s? Hoping to make everyone’s Christmas morning dreams come true?
And what about your own hopes? When you step back from the frenzy of parties and preparation, do you dare acknowledge the longings that lay just below the glittery surface of things?
It’s easy to get caught up in the trimmings. But what about the heart of Christmas? What about your heart?
There is a way to step back from the crazy. To refocus on what’s really important. To get to the heart of things.
It’s called Advent.
