Is any of us ever completely ready? I doubt it. We continually need to convert. I pray this Advent will be a time for me that results in my being more ready on Christmas Eve for Christ's coming than I was on this first Sunday of Advent. What will you do to be more ready? How will you sweep out the dust bunnies and cobwebs soiling your soul? I will be reflecting on that today. Lord give me the eyeglasses of truth that make me aware of my self-deception. Give me the broom of prayer and the dust rag of repentance that help me clean and sweep my house and make it ready to welcome you. And help me to meditate with song and reflection during the coming days and weeks. Maranatha! O come, Divine Messiah!
