  2. Thanks so much for the link :). Merry Fhristmas & God Bless!

  3. Some great finds here–thanks for collecting them and sharing. I particularly like the last two about finding peace during this busy time. I was just reading in on of my favorite books, “The Cycle of the Christian Year, by Reverend Evelyn Capel (http://www.florisbooks.co.uk/book/Evelyn-Capel/Christian+Year/9780863154348) about this juxtaposition of Advent being a time of quiet anticipation and busy-ness in the outer world. How much we must strive to meditate on what it means to anticipate His coming, when the outer world would like to pull us off track. I like this because I tend to get caught up in all the hustle and bustle, out of the best intentions of love of course. I have to keep working on making space for the “Expectant Silence.” Perhaps we all do 😉

  4. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my thoughts about the Wise Men. I’m glad you could appreciate it and I look forward to reading the other posts you mentioned. 🙂 Be Blessed this Christmas Season! Lilka

  5. Thank you for including my little Advent offering in your helpful post.
