Advent 2019: 4 Peace


At this time of darkness,
Where the nights feel never ending,
And the world feels broken,
We can often forget our humanity.
***
We try and push the dark,
Into a space in the back of our minds,
And keep thoughts of wars,
Suffering and pain for the new year.
***
So we light the last candle,
And bring to our minds forefront,
The thoughts of peace,
And what part we play in the world.

Advent 2019: 3 Joy


It’s the season of Joy,
Throughout the world,
Today we light,
The pink candle,
Think about joy,
The shepherd of mankind.
***
But while there is joy,
Spend a thought,
For the less unfortunate,
Who may not be joyous,
And may be under,
A dark cloud.
***
Outstretch your hand,
And gift some joy,
If you can make,
Just one person smile,
You can claim success,
Today and always.

Advent 2019: 2 Faith


We light this candle for faith,
He hold a light to it in times of need,
And shine a light on it in times of hardship,
We ask for guidance from it in times of confusion.
***
Faith does not just mean religion,
You can have faith in many other things,
Such as the deep faith in love for ones family,
And the unmovable unbreakable faith in humanity.
***
Share your faith no mater its bases,
Show others where you get your strength,
Help others struggling to start finding theirs,
Let others known and learn from your strengths.

Advent 2019: 1 Hope


In this time of darkness,
Where the world seems bleak,
We are given one message,
Sunday this week,
As we light our candle,
With purple hue,
We are told to feel,
The hope in me and you.
