Eve of the Second Sunday of Advent 2019

Tonight marks the Eve of the Second Sunday of Advent, a season that I've written about in a number of entries throughout my years of having this blog. Wikipedia defines this time period as a "season observed in many Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas and the return of Jesus at the Second Coming. The term is a version of the Latin word meaning 'coming."

I'm most thankful to have been given a wreath, which can be seen in the photo that is atop this entry (you can read about the significance of the wreath on another Wikipedia page by clicking here).

This wreath was made especially (as a gift) for me by the same women who gave me one last year.

During bygone years when I have an Advent wreath I set it on a table top so I can put Advent candles inside of it as seen in the pictures below which were taken over past Advent seasons.

Because of the way my 2019 wreath was designed, I've hung it on a door (as you can see in the first photo of this entry) and the candles are on a separate plate.
