I gladly invite you to come with me into the silent Joy of Advent.

“Advent is a time of waiting, of expectations, of silence.  Waiting for our Lord to be born.”

“A pregnant woman is so happy, so content.  She lives in such a garment of silence, and it is as though she were listening to hear the stir of life within her.”

“One always hears that stirring compared to the rustling of a bird in the hand.  But the intentness with which one awaits such stirring is like nothing so much as a blanket of silence.”

Dorothy Day

Last year after Christmas I was clothed with a silent pain from a freak accident working in my yard ripping the front of my left leg.  I’ve spent this entire year grateful I did not lose my limb; my scar is dissipating. Praise the Lord, for he has healed me from head to toe and all I want is to shout and dance!

How has Christ come into your world?

How has he made you a believer?

How has his death changed you?

How are you preparing for Judgment Day?

In choosing to live joyfully this Advent, let us:

“Put on the Lord Jesus Christ.”  —Romans 13:14

Practice makes perfect.  Is that really so?  I wonder.”

When we embrace the “perfection of imperfection” we can become timeless, and why not?  By tossing out the repetitive and boring stuff out of life, we can always start out fresh.

A RE-BLOG POST What is a Blessing?

This post caresses the meaning of being thankful, that I wish to re-blog it here for others to enjoy, Thanks, Daryl.


What is a blessing?
But a share of
A taste of heaven
A gift of Gods’ love

Of nothing deserved
But one of pure grace
Let us receive it
With a grateful embrace

A treasure to cherish
Shared in many ways
If we are aware
We will be amazed!

Just a reminder
Of this message true
As a child of God
You’re a blessing too!
