O Come O Come Emmanuel

     I love Advent.
     I love our family singing “O Come O Come Emmanuel” for a blessing during this season.
     I love the Feasts of Our Lady, “without whom there would be no Nativity,” said our priest this morning, and who teaches us to be humble, yielding to the will of God, and totally dependent on Jesus.
     I love how few things our children ask for Christmas, and yet how rich their experience of the JOY of CHRIST is.
     I love our friends, with whom it is so easy to enjoy this season.
     I love preparing my heart for the Coming of Christ, who has saved me, who has set my life on high ground, who protects me, gives meaning and happiness to my life.
    He is worth my life.  He is my all in all.
