I Will Walk

Dec 4, 2013 | god & grace | 1 comment

I sat in church on Sunday making a mental list of the thousand things to be done this week. I mentally arranged and rearranged the endless holiday task list, prioritizing in terms of time management, multi-tasking options, approaching deadlines, and effective linear planning (i.e. the buying of, then wrapping of, then shipping of, packages). That’s when I realized we had sung halfway through my favorite Christmas hymn of all—Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming*—and I had been so busy planning, I had nearly missed it.













I made a promise to myself at that moment.

I will walk slowly through this Advent Season.

I will listen.

I will watch.

I will wait.

    Thank you for the reminder. This is the time for listening,, breathing deeply, loving and anticipating THE EVENT. I tried to sing every word ( i could read) with feeling this morning in Church. It was glorious. Love and Joy, Nancy
