Day after Thanksgiving
We are beginning Advent this Sunday and so should begin preparing for this wonderful season of preparation to welcome the Infant Jesus as He comes into our world, into our hearts. Advent is a season of hope, a joyful season. How am I going to prepare my heart to welcome Christ again this Christmas? Keeping a gratitude journal has helped me. It really makes you aware of all you have to be thankful for each day. It helps me to focus on the positive! It makes every day a Thanksgiving!
Here are two quotes from St. Philippine Duchesne:
"When one loves God, ne never says 'enough'."
"Do not look back to the past, not forward to te future. Claim nay the present for it holds God's will."
