The Waiting-Looking Forward

Anna, waiting, heart beating in anticipation. Anna, waiting, did not leave the temple.  Anna, praising and worshiping, looking forward, waiting. Waiting for a Savior.  Dearest Readers, I hope you made it back for week two of our Upside-Down Advent. We spent two days blanketed by snow, curled up next to the Christmas tree watching snowflakes dance to the ground. It felt as if it was some sort of prelude for the days to come.

Fullness in the Feasting: Slipping Near the Edge

Fullness comes when feasting at the Master’s Table. His hands, they open wide and beckon me out of the cold, the emptiness, the broken edges, and unholy hard. -TLM Dearest Reader, I have missed you so. I have thought of you and prayed for you. I feel as if my life slid over sharp edges, leaving me reeling and hanging on the edge with clenched hands. These are the days of unholy hard that comes from living with chronic illness.  The fullness of my days has worn me weary. I know this well by now, four-plus years living this...
