But we think about them anyway
And I wonder if I’m really with you now
Or just chasing after some finer day
Anticipation, anticipation is making me late
Is keeping me waiting
—————-Excerpts from “ Anticipation” by Carly Simon
Another Advent is nearly over, my friends. Despite my best efforts, the season becomes a shopping , cooking, planning event. I remember childhood days of watching, waiting and worshiping. It’s not that I’ve forgotten that. Now I eagerly await the visits of family and friends, a party, and preparing enough food to feed our block.
Anticipation, by Carly Simon. The phrases above sum up my battle at this time of the year. Yes, I am caught up in the secular world, while trying to blend in my faith. What I have to do is remember that , after the last gift is wrapped, after the last card is written, after the last cookie is eaten, to thank God for all that he has given me. Again I am watching, waiting & worshiping. I am with Him really, enjoying some finer days, a blessing from Him. May God bless you and yours now and in the year to come.
