Advent Thoughts

When I was a child,
Advent lasted forever.
O sweet anticipation.
Would Christmas ever come?

When I was a child,
life stretched ahead forever.
Plenty of days to prepare
to face my coming King.

Now the candles dance
brighter week by week.
One and two and three and done.
Are you ready for the Son?
