Prepare the Way of the Lord 2008

One of my favorite scriptural passages for the Season of Advent is Isaiah 40: 3 - 5:

A voice cries out:
In the wilderness,
prepare the way of the Lord,
make straight in the desert
a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill made low...

The glory of the Lord
shall be revealed,
and all people shall see together,
for the mouth of the Lord has spoken."

Every day at this time of year, I go for a walk at dusk, and listen to Advent songs. The first one I listen to, is appropriately titled - "Prepare the Way of the Lord."

A year ago yesterday, I posted an entry about this piece:

"This piece, sent to me by Carolyn, is exquisite. It brought back many memories of being a liturgical musician and singing in church choirs.

It is truly moving and uplifting and fitting for this Advent Season. Truly, a voice cries out in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord!"

May we always prepare our awaiting hearts for the gifts and blessings of this season!
