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 three candles lit.
Mary, for you this time before Jesus' birthday was a quiet time, a growing time. Now we are all waiting for your Son, Jesus.
(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.)
