He is Coming

   Waiting with anticipation…clinging to the side of His mother as she takes the last steps of this journey….bringing the Savior of my soul and her soul into this world through a journey each of us would fear and wonder at…just as she did….the lessons we can learn from our Blessed Mother…
   Obedience …. she was young…treading on dangerous ground….on holy ground….her very womb would carry the greatest wonder of our world…she was the child…the ark….the vessel of obedience….
   Trust….in those days the cost of obedience to carry to Infant Jesus could have been death….stoning for a sexual sin…the world did not understand the miracle of the virgin conception…Heavenly Father took care of His innocent child…like always…He kept the ark safe and the One within reached His destination…..
   He was born to die….yet the angels sang praises and rejoiced….and thus we see the lesson we learn from the angels…..keep eternal perspective….this life is short….we don’t need to receive each and every material thing our flesh desires…..we must not be bogged down by these things….instead…we must see God’s plan and rejoice in it. We may know it is a painful journey…but if it is God’s will we must rejoice that His will is being done…
   We can learn from Joseph….quiet obedience and service to God where ever He may send us….consistently…..quietly…..faithfully…..
   We wait in anticipation….do you sense the very creation awakening…whispering….”He is coming! He is coming!”  We wait…we feel the excitement growing….not for gifts under our tree but the greatest gift….He desires to be within our hearts….He is coming! He is coming!
    Happy Advent friends….may you be blessed as you await the coming of our infant Savior…
