Advent means the arrival of a notable person or event.
Becoming a mother brought the advent of a child, unique and bearing the fingerprint of God, who would change how we walked the path of this life.
It’s a glorious reflection of that fingerprint, in the heart of each child and very much present in ourselves, that draws us into the Advent season. Remembering how our Savior, humble in His arrival, was born to a very young, inexperienced but totally obedient mother who could only marvel at that path which had been put before her. Immanuel – God with us, quietly resting against His mother. The Savior of the world with only a manger for a bed.
