Everlasting Light An Advent Meditation by Sandy Dixon
Do you remember a time, maybe when you were a child, when you were so excited that you could hardly wait for something to happen? It was hard to sleep at night because you were so excited. Did you ever wait for someone special to come to see you, and you stood or sat at a window to watch for them to pull into the driveway? You weren’t exactly sure what time they would come, but you wanted to be ready?
Advent is about waiting and being ready. We are waiting for the Christ to come. Again! We have had many Advents and Christmases. Yet the waiting is no less significant. The waiting gives us time to get ready. We must be always alert, awake, and excited. We must watch in our daily lives this Advent, as during the whole year, for ways that Christ enters our lives. As we wait for God, we can know that God works in our lives. And we know that we are God’s people and can wait in Hope. We can wait and we can find hope in Light!
