First Sunday of Advent
November 27, 2022 
 
 FOR REFLECTION:“Therefore, stay awake! For you do not know which day your Lord will come.” MATTHEW 24:42
People who have had health issues or near-death experiences generally have a greater appreciation for each day being a gift from God. The rest of us usually take for granted that we will be around tomorrow. But when you start to look at each day as a gift, you realize all the little miracles that happen daily and you begin to see God’s active presence in your life. You grow in gratitude, each day, for all that you have been given.
