Week Three: Advent Family Toolkit
Joy is new life beating in a heart that has been broken. Joy is awakening to a fair morning from a nightmare of reality. Joy is a flight sunward on wings you had forgotten you had…Joy is God’s melody amid the discord of life, a song carrying the lilt of eternity and touching the chords of longing in our souls.
—David E. Butler, from Seasons of Hope: Readings for the Liturgical Year
