The waiting has been hard, but it's almost over. I've said my prayers and lit/gazed at my candles and read my devotions and said more and more prayers. I'm not sure I will ever be properly and fully ready for Jesus to come, but I'm working on it.
I'm traveling today for a quick visit with hubby and son for my son's birthday and to attend a concert before returning to Virginia for Advent IV, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Then I'll be back on the road again for some R&R with the family. Check back daily for music, prayers, and nativities during the twelve days of Christmas!
