Sunday, November 30, 2014 - First Sunday in Advent....

Advent is a perfect opportunity for us to still ourselves and listen for God's voice as we prepare ourselves for the birth of Jesus.  Do you have opportunities to be still and listen to God, or is your schedule so full that there is no room to be still and listen?

The Mission Focus from the United Methodist Women Prayer Calendar for 2014 is the Bethlehem Center in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

May you have a day of love, joy, and peace, and may you be able to calm your mind, body, and spirit as we prepare for the birth of Christ.


  1. I wish the same for you too.
    I take some time with God each morning for Bible reading and prayer. It makes such a difference in how you face the day. : )

  2. Lots of stillness and reflection going on here.

  3. I have found that those who are the busiest need to MAKE time for quietness and reflection. We often wonder why we don't hear from God, when the reality is that we don't take that vital time to listen for His voice, which is usually a still, small voice rather than a yell. Have a splendid SONday, Sister!

  4. I forget Advent starts today. I always think it starts on the first of December.

  5. I hope you have a blessed Advent season, Nellie. We lit the first candle in church today!

    I see you are already baking Christmas cookies! in your priors blog posts They look delicious.

  6. Well said, I shall try to keep that in the front of things during the next busy weeks.
