Advent 12/02/2019

Psalms 130:5-6

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in his word I hope;
my soul waits for the Lord
more than those who watch for the morning,
more than those who watch for the morning.

Anyone who ever stood guard duty should immediately relate to these verses. When I was in Germany I would volunteer for the sunrise shift because I liked being awake before everyone else woke up and spoiled the day. Later it was the breathtaking beauty of the sun rising over the South China Sea. 

During Advent we wait for the life of God within us to awaken anew to the Life that is the Light of all humanity. I used to tell my kids waiting for Christmas-building anticipation-was the best part. Still is. Sometimes waiting is all we can do.
