Advent is ... preparation.

Advent is ... darkness into light.

Advent is ... finding the Baby Jesus.

Advent is ... searching for meaning.

Advent is ... the journey to Bethlehem.

Advent is ... "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel."

Advent is ... finding holiness in the ordinary.

Advent is ... "Come, O Long-Expected Jesus."

Advent is ... singing the Christ Child to earth.

Advent is ... listening for angel choirs singing.

Advent is ... thanksgiving for God's agape (love).

Advent is ... learning to walk in darkness and trust God.

Advent is ... finding a gift that will please God ... and giving it!

Advent is ... from "a voice cries in the wilderness" to "unto us a Child is born."

Advent is ... feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, helping the tornado victims.

Advent is ... prayer and meditation, the longest night, and the preparation for a baby.
