The Third Sunday of Advent

Sewing sequins on felt cut-outs.  Paint-by-number wooden ornaments.  Decorating Styrofoam balls to create Christmas tree ornaments.  Memories of these pre-Christmas activities came back to me last week as I glued ribbon and stickers on tealights for our United Methodist Women Christmas luncheon. 

Another thing also came back to me—the joy I had in the sewing, painting, gluing, and decorating. 

(Romans 15:38)

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
