An Invitation to Advent Living~ Guest Post by Mary Geisen — 14 Comments

  1. I’m so glad the present age isn’t all there is! It’s pretty messed up right now, isn’t it? I love the idea of living in the Advent year-round. The Advent peace and hope don’t have to only happen once a year!

    • Hi Anita,
      It’s wonderful to know that we can enter Christ’s rest and anticipate His coming each day of our lives.
      Thank you for dropping in. May you have a Happy Thanksgiving and Blessed Advent all year long!


  2. “ God never stops working to write a beautiful story for you even when you can’t see the results. Advent living is laced with hope, peace, and joy as you remain present to all that is happening in your life.” I love the fact that God is writing my story and it is laced with hope, peace and joy!! All the elements of the Advent season!! Praise Him!!!

    • Cecelia,

      You have witnessed God doing this most recently in your life. Through the pain, inconvenience, difficulty, numerous disappointments, He wove hope, peace, and bountiful joy. You have lived that part of the Advent season already. Looking forward to the future the Lord has in store for your family!

      Happy Thanksgiving!


  3. “The present age does not have the last word, but God does.“ Amen to this, Mary. I should be receiving your book from Amazon next week, right in time for December reading. Happy Thanksgiving to you, and also to you, Janice. 🙂

      • Lois,
        No need to concern yourself about the spelling of my name. It happens all the time. Ever since grade school. I used to petition my Mom to change the spelling of my name lol.
        Blessings to you. Thank you for stopping by!

    • Hi Lois,
      After a year like this, isn’t it a blessing to know neither this world nor the realm of darkness has the final say, But God does! YAY!
      Thank you for stopping in.

      Happy Thanksgiving,

  4. Thank you, Janis for sharing your space here with me. It has been an amazing journey from beginning to end to write this book and dive deeper into Advent. Many blessings to you.

    • Hi Mary,
      It was a blessing to have you and your Advent journey featured here. Your deeper walk with the Lord touched many hearts and encouraged others to find this relationship with Jesus. Advent blessings to you year round.
      From My Heart to Yours.

    • Val,
      Thinking of you and praying for you. I’m glad you liked Mary’s description of a deeper and whole life Advent experience.
      Love and prayers.

      From My Heart to Yours,

    • Hi Mary,
