6th Day of Advent: Waiting


For today's thought, I leave you with a link to this post from December 2010, when waiting was my all-day-everyday activity.

(Quote from the post:)
"For many people, waiting is an awful desert between where they are & where they want to go...[yet,] all the figures who appear on the first pages of Luke's Gospel are waiting...waiting with a sense of promise...Active waiting means to be present fully to the moment, in the conviction that something is happening where you are, and that you want to be present to it...The spiritual life is a life in which we wait, actively present to the moment, trusting that new things will happen to us, new things that are far beyond our own imagination, fantasy, or prediction. That indeed, is a very radical stance toward life in a world preoccupied with control."
- Henri Nouwen ("Watch for the Light")
