I like Advent for the same reason that my favorite roses are those that aren’t fully opened: I love the promise and possibility. I get jazzed about the questions that arise when I live in anticipation. When I take the time to reflect on them. And when I walk rather than run through life.
How do you approach Advent? In joy? Or fear? What emotions do the words anticipation and waiting stir in you?
