Today Sunday, I will light the second candle in this journey of remembrance leading to Christmas.
Today, I light the PEACE candle which for a brief period will stand beside HOPE.
I know this is a tradition BUT powerful in our hearts. I pray it will sow a seed in yours as well. These are part of the reminder to heart and spirit during Advent that in the middle of all the ‘preparations for Christmas’, we need to STOP and really think whose BIRTHDAY we are remembering.
There is no peace in this broken world. Jesus is THE PRINCE OF PEACE and in Him Alone is the Peace which passes all understanding and which will last into eternity for those who follow HIM. He said
‘My peace I give unto you. My peace I leave with you.’ John 14:27
HOPE and PEACE the twins the SAVIOUR came to earth to bring.
Today, I give thanks and my prayer is that His Presence will be with all of you who also STOP and REMEMBER.
