Hope * Advent Whispers


Advent is upon us.

It tiptoed in all quiet, dare I say caught us a bit off guard, even though we knew its annual arrival was right around the bend.

We didn't expect how deep our yearning would be.

When Sarah Bessey shared this Instagram photo-a-day 2017 challenge {along with a whole bunch of truly wonderful Advent resources}, Someone began to whisper, to nudge me.  And I quickly knew that this invitation was calling my name.  

Our name, all you who do community here in this little online space.

And though I don't know the first thing about Instagram and we're right in the middle of the Emotional Health Series, we're going to let go of the series, the examination of oft' heavy emotions, the needed yet intense conversation, 'til after the dawn of the new year.

And simply sit with the stark beauty, the sacred invitation, the utter necessity of observing Advent.

I'll be sharing treasured snapshots and Scriptures each day on the blog with the hope you'll find these visits a welcome opportunity to catch your breath, to savor a brief space of quiet ... a spiritual and emotional recalibration in the midst of the much-too-busy season that's upon us.

His season.

Oh come, oh come, Emmanuel ...



Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
