Advent Day 10 ~ In the Midst of the Mist of our Lives

img_0044Tuesday of the Second Week of Advent

Misty mornings can be cool, Lord.
They can teach us about You, about us.

There’s lots of misty-ness in our lives, Lord.

We often don’t see anything clearly.

But You are still there, our sun, the Son.
somehow, some way, penetrating  the fog, the mist.

Help us realize that mist is OK, Lord.
Misty-ness has its own beauty.

Thank You, Lord, for what it teaches us about You, about us.

Teach us to be patient, Lord.  To wait.
For the light, our light, Your light.
Come Lord, Jesus this Christmas
in our lives and in our world.

Your light will come, Jerusalem;
Your light will come, dear people of God;
the Lord will dawn on you in radiant beauty.
You will see his glory within you.
– the Advent liturgy.
