Usually, the Christmas Spirit doesn't join me until almost Christmas Day. This year, it's different. I suspect that it's because I've been more involved with church and I've been taking an "Exploring Your Spiritual Journey" class as well as reading some good books. As I sat in church yesterday, I really paid attention. It was the first Sunday of Advent. I was reminded that it is a season of renewal - a season to reflect. Everything seemed to click more. I felt good afterwards.
I will spend some time writing in my journal about Advent and what I want to accomplish this season. I make a promise to myself right now to act on the season instead of just being a passive, crazy person trying to get ready for the commercialized Christmas.
I am wishing everyone a blessed season, no matter what or how they celebrate. May you have peace in your hearts and in your lives, as well as the love you deserve.
