Things I Think…
Like many of you I’m already emotionally exhausted from the pandemic and the horrible division that has gripped this country in a vise.
Miss Kitty took quite ill and I’m not feeling so hot myself.
The division visited here and took root and decades long friends forgot that a human they once loved was on the other side of the screen.
I was not without sin in these exchanges.
It might make a man want to go to church, if the church were still functional…but it looks a lot like this site.
Things look terribly dark to me.
I’m seeing correctly.
Things are dark.
What a perfect setting for the Advent season.
I’ve never been big on eschatology before…but now I’m truly waiting for the return of Christ.
Short of that, I’m waiting on His provision…waiting for an end to the pandemic, an end to our social and political strife, an end to mitigations without compensation that will leave so many hopeless after the virus is tamed, an end to the love of many growing cold.
Waiting…for His Spirit to fall in power, because our spirits are weak and broken.
We wait, but we have a secret…it won’t always be this way.
Advent is about waiting in the dark…but we know the Light is coming.
May He find us faithful when He arrives…I don’t have to wait to act like I know Him…
