Advent is here, a time where we get to share the joy of Christ’s coming with all of those who will listen. The word Advent derives from the Latin word meaning “coming.” The Lord is coming. Your hearts, minds, and actions should be centered on the preparation of His coming and not just on the presents, parties, and decorations. Keeping focus will enrich your holiday so you truly remember “the reason for the season.”
