“Our hearts are ever restless until we find our rest in you.” St. Augustine
God’s love is infinite, divine and perfect. It is something we all search for throughout our lives.
We get glimpses of this love through our interactions with those we love; our spouses, partners, children, best friends, etc.
Love is not in the fleeting glance or a quick sound bite of life, love is everlasting; a place where time or circumstances cannot interfere.
“I know my joy is not in the things which surround us; it dwells in the innermost part of the soul.” St. Therese
We are now entering the final stretch of our Advent journey together as we prepare to rebirth ourselves in the Light of Christmas.
Each day the Light will increase, and therein increase our capacity to embrace another day.
And, so it is; I leave you to your own Advent journey.
I pray you have gained wisdom, understanding, peace, hope & love.
Henri Nouwen said it best:
“Hope means to keep living amid desperation and to keep humming in the darkness.
Hoping is knowing that there is love; it is trust in tomorrow.
It is falling asleep, and waking again when the sun rises.
In the midst of a gale at sea, it is to discover land.
In the eyes of another, it is to see that he understands you.
As long as there is still hope there will also be prayer,
And God will be holding you in his hands.”
