MysticBliss: The Waiting Begins
Today, as many of you may know, is the first day of the Advent season, which is all about my favorite thing -- Waiting. (Yes. I am using sarcasm in a post about Advent...)
Seriously. I am not good at waiting. You know this if you've been reading here for more than, say, five seconds.
Last year by creating some ritual around Advent, I found that the anticipation created a much more meaningful Christmas season.
And this year, I am finding that waiting is coming just a bit more naturally to me. For instance, I have no idea where this new Dance path is leading me and I am fine with that (most of the time).
One of the resources I used last year was this great site by the Church of England. It's wonderfully liberal and broad minded, just the sort of thing that I happen to think Christ would have appreciated! :)
If you celebrate this season, I ask you: What are you waiting to birth in your life?
