You Bring Me Joy
by Peggy Brumfield on December 14th, 2020
This is the third week of advent and it’s the week of joy. We celebrate the joy of Jesus’s birth, the joy of His resurrection and the joy knowing He will return for us one day.

Many Christians observe Advent, the four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The word “advent” is derived from the Latin word adventus which means “coming.” Not just any kind of coming, but a significant event that is anticipated with great expectation.
