It’s December 23rd, a day I’ve loved ever since childhood. Â Why? Â Because I vividly remember being a child, full of excitement about Christmas, and thinking: Just two days to go! Â Christmas was so close I could smell it. Â 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. Â I’m sharing my thoughts on the waiting of Advent in a guest-post over at my friend Sarah Reinhard’s blog. Â (Thanks for the opportunity, Sarah!) Â 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! Â We’re almost there!
