Just so you know, Advent is not forgotten. This year, even though Advent is almost as long as possible, the time has flown by! Might have something to do with the shoveling and hauling of firewood! Or not.
Today begins the beautiful O Antiphons, readying all of us to savor this last bit of Advent, and approaching Christmas Eve with a growing awareness of how good our gracious God is!
I am quoting from my Catholic Daily Planner - thanks to Michelle Quigley for providing this beautiful resource ..
"O Wisdom (O Sapientia): O Wisdom, who come from the mouth of the Most High, reaching from end to end and ordering all things mightily and sweetly; come, and teach us the way of prudence."
Ahh, prudence. Well spoken when we make our final gift decisions. Tom and I have to remind each other, balancing each other, when we do make our gift selections, that the material isn't nearly as important to our kids than the emotional and spiritual. We can't wrap those and put them under the tree, but we can offer back in an authentic way our deep love for each one of them, and our thanks to God that they were gifted to us so many years ago!
May you walk in His Wisdom today!
