Advent is a proverbial time for waiting in the darkness for the birth of the Christ Child.
Waiting with Mary.
It is a time to silently listen in expectation
as well as a time to sweep away the clutter in our hearts and souls
by simplifying our lives to make room
for a re-birth in our own hearts for this child called Jesus.
Often we are so busy with preparing for Christmas celebrations that we have little time to listen to God
If we take the time to practice this art of listening to other people,
we will meet the Divine at the same time.
He is not just dropping in and visiting my heart these days
He has inhabited my heart
It is time to stop and listen, in silence and soak in the glow of His warmth shining in the dark.
soaking in the glow of His warmth shining in the darkness.
