In this 3rd week of Advent let us thank God for all His blessings, let us remember His greatest blessing to us - His son, our Lord Jesus Christ
As we experience Advent let us ask ourselves if we are sharing our "LIGHT" with others around us, if we look at others through the eyes of Jesus - then we will be able to see those who are hungry, thirsty, in need of shelter, sick, in prison, dying, and be able to find a way to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ.
