Advent 6

Wonder at the sunset on my first trip out of the house today. I wonder in this wonder how long this ill feeling will last, when I’ll get back to my morning walks? I wonder and then I am grateful for this privilege of being able to walk out of the house and see the wonderful sky. This will pass. I am frustrated but also wanting to find the hope in the midst of this waiting slow. And here’s a verse from ‘It Came Upon a Midnight Clear’ which seems appropriate for us all right now.

O ye beneath life’s crushing load,
Whose forms are bending low,
Who toil along the climbing way
With painful steps and slow;
Look now, for glad and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing;
Oh rest beside the weary road
And hear the angels sing.
