The Joy of Advent

The Joy of Advent

watch and listen

a surprise awaits

invitations offer something wonderful

unique, challenging

Love is deep inside us;

goodness is inside of us

reach to others

embrace them as equals,

as fellow travelers,

who face the same trials and indecisions

let our gentleness and Love

be evident to all.

put aside anxieties

with prayer and thanksgiving

let our goodness thrive

listen to that inner voice

allow God to open our hearts

to His goodness.

anticipate the joy of Advent

the joy of meeting God again

for the first time,

face to face

as one meets a lost friend.
