Advent 1

It's the first of advent and I can't get myself to put up any lights. I still worry about the world, the economy, my kids, my extended family...

What worry there must have been at Christ's coming with the Roman occupation and all. Violence, oppression, poverty, hypocrisy, fears.

The message is: "Fear not. There is news of great joy!"

I will go get my wreath. But no tree and no strings of lights, yet. I'm not in the mood. I'm not ready.
