faith / tidings of comfort and joy

Lately I've felt like I'm just breezing through this month - when Christmastime is one of my favorite times of the year to savor and enjoy.  The time of advent is, after all, a time of preparation - preparing our hearts and minds for the glorious and mysterious arrival of Christ.  Then I came across this post on the Walk in Love blog emphasizing the importance of why Jesus came to earth - for our salvation - as well as focusing on restoring the joy and wonder of this fact to us in the midst of whatever we're experiencing.  It was just what I needed to hear - it encouraged my heart and refocused my mind on why we're celebrating this season in the first place.

So if you're in need of a little reminder, read that post!  I hope it brings you comfort & joy like it did for me - and turns our hearts back to the one who is the ultimate source of our comfort and joy!
