Advent – A time of reflection


This is Advent — when, as sleepers, we awaken to our own light of love, deep within us, waiting to be reborn again in the dark stables of our own souls.

Source:A Design So Vast, Lindsey Mead speaks to the nascent light of her own inner longing as Solstice approached, and offers a meditation by author Meg Casey that captures the hushed beauty of December here

December is a holy month. Maybe it is the dark, silky silence that descends so early that speaks to me of reverence. Maybe it is the promise that December holds — that no matter how dark, how cold, how empty it can get, the light is coming back. Something always shifts in me when December arrives — I embrace the darkness, and am eager for the coming solstice when the whole world is still and holds its breath, waiting to be reborn again.

The following is a pensive piece, as we reflect upon the season.

    Well what I find so refreshing is that pretty much everywhere I go now the echo in the air is ” hey, it’s ok to say Merry Christmas again.” And then after a brief and knowing chuckle comes MERRY CHRISTMAS , and same to you, MERRY CHRISTMAS. Seasons Greetings is fast being relegated to the dempsy dumpster of history- soon to be joined by Obamacare, hopefully.

    Lovely music. It does make one pensive. All the world needs Christ. And it’s up to those of us who Believe in the one true Saviour to get out there an witness while the light lasts. During this “age of grace” salvation is a Free Gift. After the Rapture, when the Saints (we believers) are removed from the scene, the only hope of salvation is martyrdom. Not a pretty picture.
    Merry CHRISTmas Bunker. May the LORD bless and keep you. ~:)

    Thanks Bunk, sure needed to see this.
    I wonder, about the world being reborn or it is the end coming. Everything that is happening around us is in the Bible…all people have to do is read…but that is better said than done, right? For whatever reason there are so many non believers out there. Just speaking from the heart, friend…been reflecting on the things that is going on.

      All we can do at this point is to focus on our own growth I guess. The world moves on and all we can do is do our best. Hope things went well with your husband.
