Preparing for a Very Special Birthday

Most years, I think that I am going to be super prepared for Advent and then the first Sunday of the season sneaks up on me and I am still knee deep in Thanksgiving dishes and can't find my candles. But not this year! Thankfully, Thanksgiving came early and we have an extra week in between putting away the pumpkins and gourds and pulling out our Advent wreaths and Christmas countdown calendars. On this Cyber Monday, I will be ordering these:

If you have not yet had a chance to prepare, it it not too late!  You can still buy my favorite Advent Companion for your Ereader or IPad. It is only $2.99 and may be the least expensive thing you buy in the month of December. You can find it on Amazon.

If you are looking to step up your Spiritual game and have time, consider joining me on Saturday, December 9 for Gifted, an Advent Retreat.  You can register using the link in the button on the right.  If you are unable to join us, consider participating in the Pray More Advent Retreat which will be an online retreat.

Sometimes, we are just too overwhelmed to even find our Advent wreaths... if this is the case for you this season, don't let that stop you from pondering the miracle of the birth of King of the Universe.
