Ponder:Is it time for confession? (And is the answer to that ever no?) Have I spent an hour in Adoration lately? What part of my heart isn't there for Jesus?
Pray:Dear Jesus, you're coming so soon! And I'm just! not! ready! (I may never ever be ready!) And yet, you will come anyway. Calm me, Jesus, and guide me to the peace you offer. Help me slow down long enough to truly prepare my heart the way John the Baptist encourages.
