333/365 First night of Advent

Tonight we celebrated the first Sunday of Advent. I like this definition of Advent - The arrival, coming, or discovery of something, especially something extremely important.

I read this scriptures to accompany the lighting of the candle.

Isaiah 60:1-3
"Arise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the LORD rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

Matthew 24:44
So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
