Welcome to the season of Advent, your first Advent.
It’s sometimes called a season of waiting.
In our anticipating and waiting for Christmas, we remember the story of Jesus' birth.
And so we wait for the day that has been set aside to remember that story and reflect on what it means for us in our lives today.
So here we are, WAITING!
So here are some thoughts on waiting.
Learning to WAIT on something you desire is not always easy.
The thing about waiting is it puts us in a position of feeling like we are not in control.
Well guess what Alice?
For the most part we are not in control.
But we can learn to wait in a particular way.
We can create the proper attitude of “trying to live in the present moment” because that is the only place where our life is happening, so we should really pay attention to that place.
So as you get older and you have one of these moments or hours, or days or maybe even years where you have to be WAITING,
Just take a deep breath and appreciate your life right where it is because right where you are is the only life you have.
Then you won’t be waiting, you will be living!
My guess is if you are able to do that, you just might find God already there, even if it's not Christmas.
