The first Sunday of Advent symbolizes Hope with the “Prophet’s Candle” reminding us that Jesus is coming.
************It's so hard to realize that Advent is actually here. It doesn't seem like Christmas to me at all. We sang all Christmas carols this morning in service and the church was all decorated, but it seemed strange. Does anyone else feel this way?
It was my turn to bring breakfast for Fellowship Time before church. I enlisted Joe's help last night and we made a pumpkin dump cake. It's so easy and turned out so good. It's one of my favorite recipes. I have it on my cooking blog right HERE.
Since I got there early I was able to get pictures of the Hope Philly Band practicing. They are our worship team. They used to be called the Praise Band, but we are changing the name of our church to the Hope Philadelphia Church so they changed the name of the band to fit.

Yes, she's standing. And not only standing, but walking. Let the fun begin! (I love her little Uggs.)
I did a lot of cleaning on Saturday but didn't do a thing on Sunday. I try to keep Sunday as a day of rest because I think you really do need one. But now I've got to get busy because there is a LOT to do. I got only the outside of the house done on Saturday.
So now since I have to get up for work tomorrow and it's after 2 a.m. I really must go to bed. I've only been able to stay up this long because I slept a lot today. But it's catching up with me so I'm going to say goodnight and welcome to December.
