Together Gift-Advent 14

Together Gift

The incarnation-
The WORD made flesh,
 who dwelt among us.
And by the gift of the LORD'S SUPPER,
we are TOGETHER with Christ.
This meal is the reassurance of the promise,
that we live here in "a little while".
A reminder of the real presence 
of the one who came to earth.
And time melts away,
as we live in expectation-
till we see Him again.
Together we wait in HOPE.

"A little while, and you will no longer see me, 
and again a little while, and you will see me."
John 16:16

(This was a tapestry that I remember
 growing up that my mom displayed
 on the cedar chest at Christmas time.
 It hangs in a stairwell
 in my home in Advent preparation.)
