Advent: In the Waiting
It is Christmas time. The stocking are hung by the chimney with care, with one little sock missing, waiting from afar.
Not missing from our hearts. Not missing from our minds. Not missing from our prayers.
But missing from our home. Missing from our arms.
It is difficult.
This season of waiting.
To know that NEXT Christmas will be different.
One more Fedell stocking.
Will it be a girl stocking or boy stocking? It is like the world's longest ultrasound...waiting to find out. Waiting for a peak at our Little One.
There is also the longing in the wait. Is our baby safe? Is our baby warm and fed and loved? Every night that is our prayer. Keep our baby safe, protected and loved.
But there is hope in the waiting. An expectancy.
As this season of Advent is winding down and the birth of our Saviour approached, the joy increases with the impatient waiting and longing.
For while we wait, while we hope, there is GREAT joy! Joy in knowing that our arms will soon be filled, that our home will soon be open and that,regardless of our plans, God is in control.....
Joy to the world, the Lord has come!
