To “make ready”; arrange, put together, produce. Preparation usually entails thought, planning and then action of some kind. Advent is a time to prepare. Is it getting the house ready for Christmas, pulling down decorations from the attic, rushing to buy presents for all? Or is it listening for that still, small voice and acting on the message of that voice for a relationship with God to unfold? Prepare ye the way of the Lord!
