The first Sunday of Advent

Come thou long expected Jesus!

I want to concentrate on preparing myself for the coming Christmas. I admit that I have not been in the 'spirit', but the service this morning at church helped move that along. I don't like society (?) pushing up when we start hanging our lights and setting up our decorations. I need a transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas, I suppose.

What are you doing to prepare yourself for the Christ child's arrival?

Nothing. Because I have been completely consumed with the reality of my life at this moment. It never occurred to me. Having most of my shopping done is my giant accomplishment.
and then I read your blog and feel deflated. Thanks for challenging me with the obvious, which I should have considered, long ago.
