This week is the 3rd Sunday of Advent and the pink candle is lit. This pink candle is called the “Shepherds Candle,” and it represents JOY!
“And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” -Luke 2:8–11
Today lets look at the Joy… in the Lord! He is our strength. Let rejoice in our Coming King!

Papa, You are our Joy! You Give me strength when I am weak. You for the glad tidings of great joy that were given to all people.. through that angelic host so many years ago. Thank You for your great gift and the joy and peace that floods our hearts. You are our rock. Amen.
