Advent: A Waiting Adventure!

“We need patience with each other;
with the old, the young, the sick, the slow,
and with God!
Psalm 36 speaks of this last need,
 the need to wait on God: 'Be still before the Lord and wait in patience.'
 We must learn how to sit still, to stop being in a hurry,
and wait for God to move within our lives.
We still ourselves in prayer,
aware that the graces we need,
the special gifts we desire,
will come to us when we are ready.
Whatever is necessary for our spiritual journeys
will come when the time is ready.
Until that time we simply sit in stillness,
waiting, and even seeing pleasure, finding fun, in waiting!”
