Christmas is almost upon us. Our holiday preparations intensify. Schedules, minds and hearts get over filled.
The Advent invitation remains: come away. Be still. Watch and wait. Make room.
What are we waiting for? That is a question worth pondering. If we are waiting for the perfect holiday, or for all our problems and wounds to be gone, we will be disappointed.
If, however, in the midst of our busyness, we take a moment to ponder the mystery of the manger; if, in the midst of our darkness, we watch for a glimmer of hope; if, in the midst of despair, we know we will find comfort; if we make room in our schedules, minds and hearts for the Christ, we will certainly find the manger light by which we will soon see our savior.
Wishing you blessings as you watch and wait.
