Advent Musings

Stretched across time
Reading from the past
Living in the present
Dreaming of the future

The season of Advent just caught me in its grasp
The waiting of it all
The anticipation
The hope
The fear mixed with excitement of the past becoming present, giving birth to the future
Prophets proclaimed it
He shall be Emmanuel!
God with us
And it was so
The past brought present and into the future

Today I am caught in a waiting game
Knowing I am here right now
Not knowing where I will be in the future
Anticipating reunion
Hoping that I will know how to listen and respond
When past becomes present and future is birthed.

I keep meaning to post...

...but I haven't been able to finish a coherent thought about the past 6 months. So here's the important bits, and perhaps something a bit more deep and introspective will follow.

  • I'm moving to Minnesota this fall for Grad School. It's cold there so I bought some new jackets.
  • I'm leaving my current job and home in a month, and I don't really have solid plans for the summer.

Early mornings
Warm tea
The quiet patter and rush of a near waking world

Take Joy

In the laughter and tears
In the rest and toil
Take joy

In the peace of a newborn
In the giggles of a young child
Take Joy

In passionate prayers
and a shared journey
Take joy

In faith
In friendship
In family
Take joy

In any way you can
those who surround you
In joy
