Waiting for whatever is coming...

An after-lunch cappuccino in Myrtle Beach

Frederick Buechner wrote: "The extraordinary thing that is about to happen is matched only by the extraordinary moment just before it happens. Advent is the name of that moment."

A mid-afternoon frisbee session

So whether it is the advent - the arrival - of a delicious meal, a long walk on the beach, a new year, or the celebration of the birth of Christ, I hope and pray for the patience, gratitude, contentment, and excitement to wait graciously for whatever is coming.

Turning for home (our beach home, that is)
