Lit White Candle in Gold Holder with Two Red Roses, Ilex Berries & Gold Pear Christmas Ornament
Today we light the second Advent Candle
and with this we are half way through
the Advent Season already.
It should be no surprise that it is
going quickly since all of 2008 has
been a blur.
Different families in the church are
taking turns reading and lighting
the candle. Today it will be done
by the Andreolas. A lovely family
whom we all adore. The second candle
will be lit and words will be spoken.
Hopefully our hearts will hear them
Immediately following the
lighting of the candle we will sing that
beautiful song, Come Thou Long Expected Jesus.
So mournful and pleading...reflecting our
need of a Savior...
"Dear desire of every Nation...
Joy of every longing heart!"
Oh, how I love this song!
I trust you have a lovely day...
keeping Christ in Christmas.
