Advent Day 13: What do you love most about these days?

The colors, smells, sounds, and sights of the Christmas season are varied and awesome. Each of us has at least one favorite thing, whether it is a treasured ornament, a beloved song, or a much-prepared recipe. These and other seasonal specialties often give us an extra spark for this busy time, and they help us remember people and places that we cherish from our past.

This year, as we enjoy special moments and momentos, think about ways to bring them into the New Year, too, so that the spark of remembrance and faith will continue to shine when the Christmas season is past. Even if it is only by a “photo album” in your heart, the holiday feeling you carry with you will surely give an extra strength, inspiration, and joy to the days to come.

Blessings for the day,
