Week of Love
We give thanks for the perfect love of your Son, so that we may, with grateful hearts, love one another. Amen
Weekly Advent Prayers by Betty Claire Jackson

Hmmm! Reverence and celebration! Wow! I’m looking at the two Advent themes for this year surrounded by the two prevailing themes of outrage and hatred portrayed daily in press. How can I think “reverence and celebration” when the world is screaming that I should “hate and destroy” those who disagree with me?
Whew!! The Spirit nudges my thoughts: Maybe I should be thinking of “who” not “how”! Maybe I need to “turn your eyes upon Jesus” (those would be great lyrics for a song).
When I remember the love and compassion God sends my way daily, I am brought to my knees in reverence for the King of kings, the Lord of lords! He is Creator and Omnipotent.
I celebrate with thankfulness that in reality God is in control of the universe and not the screaming folks that appear on TV!
