Anticipation Gift- Advent 23

Anticipation Gift- Advent  23

Waiting with excitement.
And wonderment of the
Mary knew something supernatural 
was in the works.
Her life would never be the same.
Would she have waited with such anticipation
 if she knew the sad ending of the story?
 Her time in the world would be such a small piece 
of what we know now.

"The Lord himself will give you a sign. 
Look, the young woman
 is with child and shall bear a son
 and shall name him Immanuel."
 Isaiah 7:14

When we are surrounded by loving
 and supportive family and friends, 
it is often easier to look
 to the future with anticipation.
When we find ourselves alone, 
or feelings of loneliness surround us-
 even when there are  people nearby,
the future may seem almost painful.

Lord, we ask you to be with us in 
our anticipation- that it may be a 
blessing  no matter our circumstances.
