Advent Through Adversity

Too much weight upon the festivities.

We hustle and bustle with great expectancies.

The day of brings disappointments, from overwhelmed to underwhelmed, we feel slightly under the weather.

What was the point of the tree, the lights, the planning, the preparing, the food, the baking, the gifts, the get togethers?

Too much weight upon the festivities.

We hustle and bustle with great expectancies.

The day of should point us back, to a manger lowly, and it points us forward, to a crown most holy – King Jesus has come and is coming again!

Too much weight upon your festivities.

You hustle and bustle with great expectancies.

Instead, advent through adversity, focusing on the grace of the past and the joy of forever…
