Reflektion under Advent

 ·       Be ready – the theme for today.  Being ready means living in the present, the Now. We can live in regret or fears.  The christian way is in the present.  Only the present is real.

·       You are you - immensely loved by God in the world he loves that he sent his Son.

·       Paul says that God will keep us steady in love. We are signed with the cross at birth – the badge of the christian. We could say we wear the tattoo of God, like he shows the wounds in his hands and side!

·       You meet a peaceful elderly person in the hospice - rooted in God.  Someone who hasn’t as much in life as others and it doesn’t seem to matter.  God and love and self-esteem keep them steady. Anything to do with God, with love, with depth in life comes slowly. 

·       God grows roots in us. We walk and wait  together with Jesus our Lord.  We wait together ready for his coming.

·       Waiting in  Advent is like being awake - to God and to others.  To love where we find it, and to the need for love, and active care. Maybe we might do something extra - prayer, or help someone in need,   and let Christmas be a happy one for someone else because of you.
