Advent Day 4

"Advent comes with an unbearable weight, the expectation of Christ coming...
We have work to do. The season of Advent offers an opportunity to prepare not only our homes for the Christmas season, but our hearts for the second Advent. We must remain awake, faithful and focused, even when the temptation to hibernate presses in. Wakefulness requires a conscious effort to be present, even in our distraction and weariness. Advent invites us to hold on. We cannot afford to sleep though our lives." ~Kris Camealy, Come, Lord Jesus, p19-20

"And then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory." Mark 13:26
