Advent 1

I wish you all the joys of the Advent season.

The Collect for the first Sunday in Advent begins:
ALMIGHTY God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armour of light. . .
As we light the first candle of Advent, we anticipate the all the wonderful preparations, activities, and celebrations leading to the feast of Christmas. I hope you will pause to remember that this is a time to prepare for celebrating the best Gift of all.

Thank you, dear Prscilla - as I read The Collect a gentle smile grew on my face.

Sending care, love and huggles,

Michelle

(just now Zebby is pottering around somewhere in our wee home otherwise he'd be sending puRRRumbles)

Why is it that I only notice the spelling mistake after I've clicked on the "publish" button. I know your beautiful name is spelt "Priscilla"
