My phone doesn’t blow up with notifications anymore. I’m actually getting through the day enjoying that first cup of coffee, and the second.
Turn off the news.
No morning TV.
Honestly, it’s exhausting.
It’s Thanksgiving and we need the peace.
It will all still be there when we get back.
Let’s just be.
Be thankful for everything God has given us.
You know what Advent means, right? Latin adventus is the translation of the Greek word parousia, commonly used to refer to the Second Coming of Christ. So, you can look at Advent in two ways. The incarnation of the long-awaited Messiah, or the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior.
He just keeps on coming! In the crazy, crazy times. Year after year.
Maybe we can just focus on that.
Let’s turn off the news and focus on that—
Because that’s the kinda news we can live with.
Grace & Peace,
