Comfortable Words

From Isaiah 40:
"Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received from the LORD's hand double for all her sins."
I'm coming to see Advent as a season of solemn joy and expectation, a time of "happy seriousness".  This is especially true for me in the season of Christ's second advent when I consider that seeing God will be the pinnacle of our existence.  Yet at the same time, there will be that reckoning when I stand before him, talents in hand to give my report.
