Advent Sunday - Second

The second candle is the Bethleham Candle or Candle of Preparation. God kept his promise of a Saviour who would be born in Bethleham. Preparation means to "get ready". Help us to be ready to welcome you, O God!

This is also a season of peace. Jesus came to bring us spiritual peace and is known as the Prince of Peace.

Hi BJ, had to stop by to see what you are making! Love this page and your candle is so pretty. Is it paper?

Love this advent Sunday page - very nice. Have just spent a while looking through your Attitude of Gratitude of pages - they are all wonderful I kind of wish that I had taken part a bit more but I was so busy last month I think it would have stressed me out more than relaxed me! I love all of the pages - I think 21 is my favourite. Bet you are really pleased with yourself for completing it.
