As I sit and have my cup of coffee with Jesus, I am thinking about something that St. Teresa of Avila once said, “Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you. Though all things pass, God does not change. Patience wins all things! But he lacks nothing who possesses God; for God alone suffices!”
As we approach ADVENT, we are preparing for the LIGHT of CHRIST to come into our world. What perfect timing. When it seems that the world is so dark, with JOY and ANTICIPATION we can welcome the light.
The darkness, too, will pass, as it has generation after generation, but we must search for the LIGHT. Today is a great day to think ahead, to think of this ADVENT season in which we can spiritually prepare for the LIGHT, welcoming Jesus into our world, our nation, our families, and our hearts!
Let’s not stay in the darkness, let’s embrace the LIGHT!
