How dark outside!
but see -- a star's in the sky;
Mary and Joseph are passing by.
So let's light a candle to welcome them
as they go on their way to Bethlehem.
Our homemade Advent wreath with two candles lit.
Lord, we've been waiting and waiting and waiting. Christmas seems so far away. Thank you for wanting to be with us always.
(Please note that the prayers and images that we use for our Advent wreath prayer cube came from somewhere else, but unfortunately I don't remember where.)
