One Advent Candle

Blessed Advent to all! I made an Advent "wreath" today and was excited for the Fast to begin.





The first candle is green to represent faith. The faith we have in God that He will keep his promise to send His Son.


One Advent candle now we light
to show the coming gift of love.
Now hasten to our darkened sight
the Light that's given from above.

Prayer: Holy Trinity, as the world that sat in darkness looked forward to your coming, so we on this first week of Advent light the candle of anticipation. We eagerly desire Your coming to our souls to dispel darkness of sin and pride, to ignite in us the flame of love and service to others. All glory be yours, now and forever. Amen.
