First Saturday of Advent
“On the seventh day God completed the work he had been doing; he rested on the seventh day from all the work he had undertaken. God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work he had done.”
Reflection: Like an artist who steps back to take in her finished product, the Lord rests and smiles like a master carpenter at the beautiful work of His hands. Prayer: God our Father, all that exists has its being in You. You hold all of creation in being at all moments. Help us to slow down and rest this season, drinking in the beauty of all You have done and still do. Amen.
