@mrsSonthebeach:  Thank you for remindng me.  I’m so wrapped up in every day life, working, and catching up on sleep.  I miss going to Catholic school at times.  We would always light the candles.  Really good memories.

I love advent too–I went to the first advent service today at church and really loved it. It really helped put my mind and heart in the right place: I’ve been super stressed-out with my last semester of college and it always seems like December is such a stressful month, when really, the spirit should be one of cheer, thanks, giving, gratitude, and thankfulness: and yes, patience, I absolutely agree. The sermon in church today was on John the Baptist, often an overlooked figure in the nativity story, and the emphasis on repentence and readying my heart for advent was really what I needed to hear.

Thank you for this post: I actually wanted to post something about advent but wasn’t sure what reception it would get (especially on the weekends when not that many people normally seem to post!).
