So many parts of life require waiting. So many experiences involve a time of preparation:
  • Nine months before a baby is born.
  • The time between beginning a class and finishing (teaching or hearing the last lesson)
  • Watching your children grow up
  • The time between taking an exam and finding out your grade
  • Tme spent baking, waiting until the cake is done
  • Time between catching a cold and being well again
  • Walking the dog, until the "job" is complete

Advent is a time of waiting. Don't rush it. Christmas is almost here, but there is still some time for waiting. It can be a gift, so just wait. There is a purpose to waiting.
