Today marks the 3rd Week of Advent, which symbolizes ‘Joy’. The long wait for the arrival of Jesus has reached a halfway point. The candle color to represent this week is Rose (or Pink), different from the other three candles in the Advent wreath, which are Purple.
This period marks a sign that while the wait may seem lengthy, it will come to a close very soon. In life, we must all remain in a peaceful, patient state. This may feel extremely difficult at times, since other factors may come in to distract us from just staying at peace. In life there are many peaks and valleys in our journey, yet we are never venturing alone.
