I’ve been taking a holiday.
December is a good month to sit quietly, sip something warm, and reflect.
I like to look back at the lessons and gifts of the passing year.
I like to think about what to pray and hope for in the coming year.
But mostly I like to listen.
To the quiet.
This Advent season, I feel a holy shushing.
So I’m taking a happy holiday from my words to hear the Word.
There has been the voice of one crying out in the wilderness.
Will I be prepared?
There will soon be the voice of one crying out in the manger.
Will I hear it?
Thank you, Dinah…
Hope you have a wonderful holiday, Debbie!
Such a good reminder to be quiet, amongst the business of this season. I too will reflect on all I have learned this year, and take time to listen…..be quiet.
I find quiet times come in waves. When everybody is home I enjoy the noise and chaos, but I need the balance of peace in between!
