Opportunity Gift- Advent 5

"Jesus changes our history from
 a series of sad incidents and accidents 
into a constant opportunity 
for a change of heart."  
Henri J.M.Nouwen

In the day after the very sad
San Bernardino shootings 
and deaths of innocent people,
we must wonder 
where the good waits.
It is hard to wait to see the
turn for Goodness.

"To wait patiently therefore
means to allow our weeping 
and wailing to become the 
purifying preparation
 by which we are made ready
 to receive the joy which is promised us."
Henri J. M. Nouwen

Advent waiting is HOPE.
"Be patient, therefore, beloved, 
until the coming of the Lord. 
The farmer waits for the precious crop
 from the earth, 
being patient with it until it receives
 the early and the late rains. 
You mist be patient. 
Strength your hearts, 
for the coming of the Lord is near."
James 5:7-8
