What’s it like being a watchman, you’re wondering? Well, it’s not a glorious life, being a watchman, I can tell you that much. In fact, most days, I don’t think there’s a more boring job.
Every one of us his forgiveness, his peace, his hope, his presence for that day! Today, God promises his forgiveness, peace, hop“What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.”
Today, all around the world, Christians are lighting the third of four Advent candles. And although we don’t see it here, in many Advent wreaths, that candle stands out. It’s the perfect example of that classic Sesame Street jingle: “One of these things is not like the other.”
Every year I hold out the empty hope that winter will not come. Every year I dream that somehow fall will go straight into spring. But every year, I’m disappointed. It’s the first real snowfall that always kills that dream.
