“So now we pause. Still. Ponder. Hush. Wait. Each day of advent, He gives you the gift of time, so you have time to be still and wait. Wait for the coming of the God in the manger who makes Himself bread for us near starved. For the savior in swaddlings who makes Himself the robe of righteousness for us worn out. For Jesus, who makes precisely what none of us can but all of us want: Christmas.”
Ann Voskamp, She Reads Truth
Can someone please tell me where the time has gone? I honestly can not believe that today marks the first day of the last month in 2014. What an incredible year this has been. A year of great growth and change for us and as we enter in this advent season, my prayer comes from the quote above – that I would accept His gift of time to pause, still, ponder, hush and wait. I am keeping my goals short again this month so I can do just that.
