Advent Day 11

"Yes, we wait during Advent.We shift anxious with anticipation for the coming King. We prepare and plan and plot our next steps, diligently living each day as it comes, but sometimes, forgetting that though we wait, we are invited to dream. We are prodded towards hoping against all that our eyes see, for the heaven that is already here in our midst. Thy kingdom come. It has, it is, it will  again. Might we celebrate the fervent faithfulness of God, the restoration already given through Jesus, and the coming restoration of the earth like dreamers do, with shouts of joy, with visions of hope, with laughter on our lips? 
Let Advent be not only a contemplative time, but a spirited celebration of the joy of the already-here Jesus." ~Kris Camealy, p53-54.
