Oh weary soul return to the place your body knows
Retrace the well-worn pathways deep etched into your bones
Relax your weary muscles from daily stress and struggles
Let muscle memory lead your soul to what it needs
—from the hymn “Oh Weary Soul Return” by Rev. Anna Strickland | @sanctifiedart

“Advent” comes from the Latin word adventus which means “coming”. The season of Advent is the first season of the Christian church year and encompasses the four weeks leading up to Christmas. It is a season of waiting and preparing for the coming of Christ on Christmas, which lasts for 12 days until Epiphany (January 6).
This Advent, we will be going through a series titled How does a weary world rejoice? created by A Sanctified Art. We hope these daily meditations will accompany and inspire you on your Advent journey!
