LifeZette: Here are faithful preparation tips for all of us this Christmas for the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Most consider these weeks at the beginning of December to be a time to prepare for Christmas.
But few focus on Advent as the spiritual underpinnings of the season.
Advent, which began on Sunday, December 1 of this year, is a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the nativity of Jesus at Christmas.
Here are some internal and external tips in preparation for this unique and sacred time of year.
1.) Make more time for prayer. With the craziness of shopping, cooking, traffic, Christmas cards, long lines, difficult family moments and more ahead, you need to let your soul breathe in the fresh air of God’s grace.
