@bowera You’re on the calendar. Day really doesn’t matter as all submissions are due before Thanksgiving. Thanks for being willing to participate.
Abundance - Dec 4
You're on the list. Thanks!
Sarah, I'll gladly take an advent quality. Not knowing what qualities have already been chosen, I'll give several that appeal in me in the sense of the coming Christ child. You may either select one or tell me which of my choices haven't been chosen yet.
Choices: hope, silence, adoration, expectancy, constancy, growth, rejoicing. I can go back to the drawing board if these are taken. I assume that you will select the order in which each word is presented. Connie
@guest_connie, I put you down for hope on December 23. Regardless of the date, all submissions are due before Thanksgiving. Thanks so much!
I’d like to write about consecration. Any day is fine.
Hi Sarah, I apologize for not responding earlier. If you think that unity would work, I can take that quality. I am open to other suggestions. Trina
December 1: Unity
It appears that not all the days are spoken for, I might be missing something though. If you need it, happy to take a day. I would love to cover light.
December 2 - Glory
December 4 - Abundance
- In Genesis 1, the word “abundantly” is used twice in the description of the spiritual creation.
- Joseph was able to provide for his family when they came to Egypt for food during the drought (Gen 42).
- When Moses struck the rock in the wilderness, water came out so abundantly that there was enough for all the followers as well as their animals (Ex 17).
- Elisha provided a never-ending pot of oil for the widow (2 Kings 4).
- Peter’s fishing net was filled with so many fish that it broke (Luke 5).
- Jesus fed the multitude with five loaves of bread and three fish and there were leftovers! (Matt 14).
- “Divine Love always has met and always will meet, every human need.” (S&H p. 494)
- “How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light” (Psalms 36).
December 5 - Compassion
"I am the resurrection,
and the life,"
could prove unreal the bitter dream of death.
as he, the unreality
of all the sorrow, ignorance, and sin;
the peace of God.
He who could say,
"My peace I give to you,"
who said his joy
no man could take away,
could view the world's pain as an unreal dream,
to heal and comfort all.
beholding as unreal
this mortal dream of agony and strife,
with careless eye the suffering throng,
but e'en as he,
the Saviour, strove and yearned
to gather all beneath Love's outstretched wings,
so may we see our suffering brothers' needs,
and sending forth
Love's healing balm,
include the whole world in our heart's embrace.
For Jesus loved.
