This issue of the Shepherdess journal features articles about the first Advent. It is so important for us to remember what a great sacrifice it was for Jesus to come as a vulnerable, tiny baby to a wicked, lost world.
As has become our custom, we have included some stories and inspirational articles which I hope will provide you with some quiet moments of reflection and inspirational reading.
Finding a quiet moment to myself is precious and rare. But there is nothing so rejuvenating. The holiday season is almost upon us and before you completely stress out over all there is to do daily without this added work, plan now for a few moments to yourself--go to your favorite easy chair, prop up your feet, and enjoy a hot cup of herbal tea as you read this issue of the Journal.
