Happy first Sunday of #Advent! Today begins the season of preparation for the birth of Jesus on Christmas. 🎄⁠
⁠
"Brothers and sisters:⁠
You know the time;⁠
it is the hour now for you to awake from sleep.⁠
For our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed;⁠
the night is advanced, the day is at hand."

When Jesus healed 10 lepers, only 1 returned to give thanks. As we enter the busy holiday season, we're encouraged to return to the Lord with a #thankful heart, just like the leper. ⁠
⁠
On this #Thanksgiving, let's say a prayer of thanks for all the blessings God gives us. ⁠
