Spiritual Sunday — Advent || The First Sunday

Sunday, November 27, 2016

Hello my Lovlies — today is the First Sunday of Advent.  Last year on Cynthia's Colorful Mess I did a little series about the 4 Sundays of Advent. 

To date those posts have been some of my highest rated reader stats of the entire year.  Keeping that in mind, why change a good thing (right)?

So, I am going to repost my Advent posts from last year.  I hope you enjoy them as much as you did last year. 

The first Sunday of Advent begins
 a season of hope and fulfillment. 

There perhaps may be some of my readers who do not know what Advent is.  That being said, Advent is generally known as the period beginning four Sundays before Christmas, observed in commemoration of the coming of Christ into the world.

On each Sunday of the Advent season, Christians focus on one of the four virtues Jesus brings to us: Hope, L♥ve, Joy, and Peace.  Today being the first Sunday of Advent we are celebrating prophecy / expectation or "hope".

 We can have hope because God is faithful and will keep the promises made to us. Our hope come from God. 
(Romans 15:12-13)

So my Lovlies, I pray you take the time during this busy holiday season to learn about and celebrate Advent.
