On Advent and Our Family

I had posted this elsewhere and thought I should really add it to my blog…

As I think on Advent and look forward to Christmas celebrations, there is nostalgia, memories, anticipation… Nothing delights me more than the laughter of our children in our home. After six consecutive miscarriages, these two living children are truly miracles, and I can only imagine the plans the Lord has for them. The why, when, and to whom the Lord gives and takes, or withholds, will always be a mystery this side of heaven. I live every day as sinner/saint, grieving/rejoicing and ever pressing onward awaiting His return.

“Lo, the Lamb, so long expected.
Comes with pardon down from heaven.
Let us haste, with tears of sorrow,
One and all, to be forgiven,

That, when next he comes with glory
And all the world is wrapped in fear
He may shield us with his mercy
And with words of love draw near.”
