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”
