New Christian Year.
What are you hoping for or seeking?
Advent Day 3
There are blessings still to come.
Luke 6:20-2120 Then he looked up at his disciples and said:
“Blessed are you who are poor,
for yours is the kingdom of God.
21 “Blessed are you who are hungry now,
for you will be filled.
“Blessed are you who weep now,
for you will laugh.
“For you will laugh.” Really? There will be laughter?
Do you have a sense that something really great is going to come? Even with the many restrictions that surround us right now we can still laugh and get excited. Yes, Christmas will be different, perhaps even difficult. But, Christ is still with us. There is snow on the ground but the hope of spring is still with us. Are you looking at the seed catalogues or pictures of warm beaches?
We wait and in waiting we can learn to laugh, to dance, to sing (at least on our own), to pray, and live through the gift of Christ in our lives.
Blessed – is the one who wears the mask and loves their neighbour (hood).
Blessed – is the one who Hopes in Christ.
What are your blessings today? Let’s share our blessings.
In the peace of Christ,
