I love how this season transforms our home and, in turn, my focus. All of a sudden, it has a new feel- a feeling of awe and excitement. It's special, celebratory. Clearly something amazing is about to happen. We turn candles on in the windows at dusk, leave the Christmas tree lights on all day and evening, read advent scriptures and hang special ornaments, play with figurines Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus and eat way too many cookies. We prepare out hearts as we prepare our home.
