advent – week one

The light of Prophecy.

Prophets have foretold the birth of the Savior from the beginning of time.  Foretelling the signs, the birth, and the life and miracles of the Savior brought a light to the people, It also enabled them to look forward and wait for the coming of the Savior.  They waited for the signs.  They hoped and believed he would come.  They believed and had faith in the deliverance His life would offer them.  Come He did with the light of the star and signs and miracles, just as the prophets had foretold many years before.  That hope and faith is a light, a light that prophecy provides.  We too can wait for the signs and hope of what his coming has given all of us.  Knowing that he will come again in light and glory.  These truths lighten my heart and soul this Christmas and fill me with hope, love, and gratitude for the gifs and lights of Christ.

Isaiah 7:14 
14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Numbers 24:17
I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel…

Psalms 24:10
Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.

1 Nephi 11:18
18 And he said unto me: Behold, the virgin whom thou seest is the mother of the Son of God, after the manner of the flesh.

Tonight we practiced/learned God Rest Ye Merry Gents.  Mostly I struggle with the uke cords but B rocks out.  We made Gingerbread cookies, (which I burned) dipped in egg nog. B is a good sport, he tells me he likes the burned ones.
