Today is the first Sunday of Advent.

For me, it is about Anticipation as much as Celebration.

I’m getting burned out on the term Merry Christmas, though. Let’s face it, for those of us that listen to “Christian Radio,” we a left with 20+ days of cheesy Christmas Music, and the continual reminder that they’ve kept “Christ in Christmas.”

Apparently their marketers said it was good for their demographic.

So, I’ll stick with Advent.

Advent has to be about Jesus. You just can’t get a Santa Clause out of Advent.

While celebrating the birth of Jesus, I will look toward his Second Coming with Hopeful Anticipation.
