First Sunday of Advent

Today was a beautiful day in Northeast Ohio. I should have been outside soaking up the sun, but after church and warming up some leftovers for lunch, I changed into something comfy and plopped down on the couch with my laptop to continue the search for a house. I’m trying to stay positive and believe God will lead us to the right one, but sometimes I get discouraged. There’s just not anything available right now in our price range. Bummer. 

I enjoyed the rest today. No hustle and bustle. I have done most of my shopping online. I ordered something for the youngest in our family today while I was online. I love that someone brings stuff to my door and saves me the madness of going out in the shopping jungle! 

I did make dinner and clean the kitchen  this evening, so I’m not feeling completely unproductive. 

I enjoyed the church service so much this morning. Today we celebrate Jesus being the light of the world. A family from the church read scripture and lit the first advent candle. It felt so peaceful. We also took communion because it was the first Sunday of the month. It was such a time of reflection and awareness of my need of the Savior of the world...Emmanuel, God with us. 


I’m praying for peace and healing in the coming year. For now though, I’m focusing on the one who provides the peace and healing, Jesus.
