Advent Prayer

Advent Prayer

Jesus you are coming

Like the sun just below the horizon

Like presents on Christmas morning

Like the dog waiting to play

Like the Facebook video I saw of the sister at the airport who stood on tiptoe to see her brother come home from college

Like the gardener eager for fruit to appear

Like the lonely longing for love

Like the student hungry for inspiration

Like the patient waiting to be released from the hospital

Like the words from the author’s pen waiting to be written

Like mid-life dreams of freedom

Like the homeless waiting for peaceful shelter

I wait

We wait

For the moment of incarnation

Thank you
