But what I really want to talk about is what Advent represents . It is the season of watchful waiting ... waiting for the arrival of the Christ child. I don't know about you but I'm not always a patient waiter....waiting in lines, waiting for elevators, waiting for something to change....etc....some would even add "waiting for paint to dry." But during this season I actually am able to wait patiently, concentrating each day on what lies ahead....the celebration of the Hope of the world, the Light of the world. I make sure to light a candle nightly, as a reminder that one tiny light brings light to the darkness....in our lives, our world, our inner selves.
I wish each of you peace as we journey through this season of "watchful waiting." Maybe it would be a good idea to ask ourselves each day "What am I waiting for in my life? " And...how will I experience this journey?
