But tonight was a free night so after we got home from work we sat down together in our home office, lit the first candle of advent, enjoyed a glass of wine and relaxed in the coziness of the candlelight. We were so thankful for this quiet moment in the midst of the barrage of activity that is coming at us at fairly rapid pace these days. It was refreshing and renewing.
In the midst of this demanding season, we must all find ways to enjoy the coziness of Advent. God is eager to draw near to us, to connect with us, to share quiet moments with us. Perhaps the bigger question is simply this: Are we willing to create space to draw near to God, to connect with God, to share quiet moments with Him? Life is busy, but find the quiet, enjoy the cozy, sit in the presence of God and enjoy the peace that his presence brings...even if it's only for 5 minutes!
