Not Giving Up on Advent

image

This is the time of year, usually around the 2nd Sunday of Advent that I usually give up. I realize that I haven’t done what I planned to do and I am very behind.
But this year, I don’t want to give up. I don’t want another year pass doing nothing to mark the seasons and then suddenly face the insanity of Christmas day.
So I’m not giving up. I’m starting where I left off and just writing wherever I can. I think skipping and starting with today would be fine but copying these scriptures takes minimum time so I’m going to try to start where I left off and see how I do.

I even screenshot this page so it’s handy next time I take a break. Yesterday I had a red pen and a desk calendar handy while pumping and made the above masterpiece. And this concept of the INCREASE of his government and peace there is no end, stuck with me all day. Heaven isn’t the same perfect boring. There is no end to the increase. Always better and better.

And then I got stuck on his names. Counselor. Father. Peace.

And yet I think part of my lack of sticking to this was that I expected this to be a kind of boring exercise. I think I underestimated the power of God’s word.
