tHE FOURTH LIGHT OF ADVENT
IT IS THE LIGHT OF MAN,
THE LIGHT OF LOVE, THE LIGHT OF THOUGHT,
TO GIVE AND UNDERSTAND.
This week we honor humankind. We talk about how we can bring our awareness to love for all, compassion for everyone, and gifts of selfless acts to those we encounter during the week (and how this can go around all year…not just this week). We keep it simple at home. Spend extra time together watching Christmas movies and driving to look at lights. While we are venturing out to run errands we think of helpful acts we can share with those who cross our path…as simple as opening the door for a stranger, picking up litter, and offering to help others we see in need without being asked. The kids most favorite activity this week was “playing Santa” and delivering a toy to someone’s door step who really needed some Christmas love.
This week we will wrap oursleves in thoughts of gratitude and kindness for all. And will be thankful for all of the love and blessings we have in our lives.
