Kindness Lives in a Loving Heart
The intentionality of Advent guides us to prepare on many levels.
Our theme “Choosing Kindness” reminds us that kindness lives in a loving heart, and God’s love, made manifest in Jesus’ birth, is ours to receive and share.
As we ready for Jesus’ arrival, the intentionality of Advent guides us to prepare on many levels:
- To slow down our minds and be more conscious in our interactions with others.
- To take care of ourselves physically during this busy time.
- To examine our faith so we may fully comprehend Mary’s willingness to be God’s mother, to follow a plan which probably scared and confused her.
- To prepare our hearts by understanding the depth of love God had by sending His only Son to us, to open up our hearts to this love, and in turn, give love to one another.
As you prepare for Christmas, may kindness flood your heart and lead you to the deep love present in Jesus’ birth.
