I took a crisp walk outside yesterday. Even though it was autumn, I found blooming flowers. I usually look upon this time of year with dread. This is the calm before the storm: the storm of the holidays, and the storm of weather that freezes.
This is the time of year before Advent. Some of us are waiting for the holidays. This is the preparation time. Last Sunday’s sermon was titled “What Are We Waiting For?” My minister suggested making a list of everything we are waiting for. Are they things that we are expecting to happen to us? Are they things that we need to make an important action to complete? What are you waiting for? What do you need to do to make your dreams come true? Do you need to rest patiently? Do you need a call to action? Take a look at everything you are waiting for this season and make the waiting less about dread and more about joy.
