Advent season reflection

December 2, 2009

Advent season
by Brunhilde Luken from her book, My Walk with Christ

Advent, a time to wait
Decorations and lights are everywhere.
The smell of Christmas cookies
Christmas bazaars
Everybody is so excited
Happy faces, Children’s eyes sparkling with excitement

What are we waiting for?
Will this be a new awakening

Yes we all wait for the birth of Christ
What does this mean for us?

We are running from store to store buying gifts for one another
Yes we give love with a little gift, a thank you
Love that God gave to us with his Son
That love that came to awaken our hearts to one another
We forget so often.
But Christmas, yes on Christmas
Now we allow ourselves to give a gift of love
And to receive that gift

For now we are waiting with excitement
For the celebration
The birth of Christ in each one of us
To receive the gift that God gave to us

Matthew 1:21
“She will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus,
For He will save His people from their sins.”
