Advent..A Season to Reflect, Remember, and Rejoice

A family tradition at our house, celebrating Advent…

Reflect…

Remember…
Rejoice…

“Follow the star to a place unexpected

Would you believe after all we’ve projected

A child in a manger

Lowly and small, the weakest of all

Unlikeliest hero, wrapped in his mother’s shawl

Just a child

Is this who we’ve waited for?

How many kings, stepped down from their thrones?

How many lords have abandoned their homes?

How many greats have become the least for me?

How many gods have poured out their hearts,

to romance a world that is torn all apart?

How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Bringing our gifts for the newborn savior

All that we have whether costly or meek

Because we believe

Gold for His honor and frankincense for his pleasure

And myrrh for the cross he will suffer,

Now, do you believe?

Is this who we’ve waited for?

How many kings, stepped down from their thrones?

How many lords have abandoned their homes?

How many greats have become the least for me?

How many gods have poured out their hearts,

to romance a world that is torn all apart?

How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Only one did that for me!

All for me, all for you”
