December 7th, 2014- Second Week of Advent

Happy Sunday!

43,000+ visitors to reclaimsunday.net!  In February 2015 we will celebrate our second anniversary!  God bless you for sharing with others our interest in standing in the truth of the first day of the week!  Life is so rich when shared with others!

The young couple were preparing to leave after Mass, new to the area.As they layered up for the winter weather outside they then turned to the newborn in the tiny carrier to straighten the fleece blanket  over an amply bundled baby who was smililng. The exchange was how such parents could teach us about Advent waiting!  The beaming mother exclaimed, "Last year I was pregnant at this time!"  The father smiling gently was still tucking in the fleece situating the baby's hood and protecting his small gift.  This reminds us that some surprises from God lie hidden for a time before their appearance.  So we hope to learn to patiently wait.

In the book: Advent and Christmas with Fulton J. Sheen he wrote on such a turn when the Holy Family sought lodging at the inn but met with rejection.

"The world might have expected the Son of God to be born in an inn; a stable would certainly be the last place in the world where one would look for him.  The lesson is: divinity is always where you least expect to find it.  So the Son of God-Made-Man is invited to enter into his own world through a back door."

Peace!

I haven't perfected my Sundays yet -- but I do refrain from at least laundry and cleaning. I do try to find something special to eat, too. Working on it!

Studying in Jerusalem several years ago, I was very moved by the power the Sabbath has to reclaim and rejuvenate lives of believers, a time for complete rest.
