This advent, my intention is to write a series of short reflections on my blog, taking no more than 15 minutes a day to put myself back into a time in my life where I was waiting or preparing for something. I know the outcome of these events now, but I didn’t know them at the time.
The point of this exercise is to be intentional. I hope to examine the small points of light that have emerged for me on this journey as I have waited during other times of my life: times of hope, times of love, times of joy, times of peace. The intention of this advent journey is to immerse myself in the waiting and expectation…and in doing so, intentionally reflect with gratitude on the outcomes that eventually came to be.
This Advent 1, I begin with the theme of Hope.
