 A time of waiting.  A time of preparing, of getting ready.  Often I lose sight of the main thing I’m waiting for.  I get lost in preparing for gift-giving, for meals, and for special visits.  But then I find myself drawn back to that special gift.  A baby.  A savior.  Sometimes a song redirects my attention –                                "Mary did you Know. . . .?"  Sometimes the light of a candle reminds me of the star that led the shepherds and leads us.  Sometimes as I prepare for guests I stop in amazement that Jesus has come into my life, my home, my family.  And I must prepare my heart.  I must take time to think about receiving my Savior. I must wait and prepare.
