As a teenager, my best friend had come to visit for about a week. We were enjoying the unusually still evening, sitting on the side of a deserted country road, looking off at the sunset and not saying much. At that moment, something inexplicable happened.
Season of Advent
In the weeks leading up to Christmas, known as the season of Advent, we will give lots of gifts. Gifts to our co-workers, family, friends and even strangers. Giving freely is something God calls us to do and brings us great joy.
As a kid, I always knew the holidays meant preparing for guests to arrive and cleaning the house. Believe it or not, this is where the Disney princesses come in to help with my preparation for Advent.
