“Those who have been ransomed by the LORD will return.
They will enter Jerusalem singing,
crowned with everlasting joy.
Sorrow and mourning will disappear,
and they will be filled
with joy and gladness.”
Isaiah 35:10 (NLT)
Today is the Advent Sunday of Joy. This day marks a turning in our Advent journey. We turn from quiet expectation to joyful celebration. The coming of the Christ draws near. The reason for all our preparation and celebration.
For me it has been a long, busy and wonderful day. I am tired, but also reminded of how good it is when God’s people gather together. Once again I’m feeling a little wordless. So I leave you with the wonderful passage from Isaiah above, the image below and the wish that as you continue to celebrate, all your days would be merry and bright.
