To wait in anticipation, to eagerly await an arrival. Lord, the world waited in anticipation for your first arrival and waits again for you to come. Some days are filled with longing, some filled with despair at the waiting and still others are filled with hope. You gave us a blueprint of your character to practice with each other until you return.
Some days we do so well in living out your character and grace and others, oh my, we need so much more practice! Waiting can be so hard yet you’ve given us much to do with our time here. I want to show others the magnitude of your grace, hope and peace. As I pass your character on to those in my life, may they catch a glimpse of what is to come and wait with joy.
