The big wait

It’s December 23rd, a day I’ve loved ever since childhood.  Why?  Because I vividly remember being a child, full of excitement about Christmas, and thinking: Just two days to go!  Christmas was so close I could smell it.  The excitement I’d been feeling all month suddenly started to accelerate, tangibly.

These days, I’m still excited, though my excitement has a more spiritual side to it than it did when I was a kid.  I’m sharing my thoughts on the waiting of Advent in a guest-post over at my friend Sarah Reinhard’s blog.  (Thanks for the opportunity, Sarah!)  While you’re there, be sure to check out her own fabulous reflections, including a very beautiful musing on her new son’s recent baptism.

And Happy 23rd!  We’re almost there!
