Saturday - Preparing for Christ the King

This Saturday is the last Saturday in the Church year.   Tomorrow is Christ the King Sunday.  Then comes Advent.  I love Advent.  The waiting and preparing for our Saviour.   So today will be cleaning up the house and trying to remember where I put the Advent candles of last year :)   Many years ago at Knox Church Port Carling ON,  we decided to use scented candles.  The candles were locally made and a beautiful colour.   Only problem was the Church mice loved them too.  Who knew mice would devour scented candles!    So the Saturday before every Advent,  I now have a good chuckle about scented Advent Candles... and Church mice :)  

Prayer:    O Christ our Lord and King,  You are the way,  the truth, and the life.  Apart from You,  we go astray,  we cannot understand, and life without You is no life at all.  Watch over our thoughts, our words and our actions,  keep us throughout this day, so that all we do may be begun and completed in Your name.  Blessed for ever and ever.  Amen.
