Like a leaf in a slow dance with the Wind, we are carried in the breath of God even in the turmoil. Preparing for Advent in Silence
God is working in so many people’s lives right now. He has a special affection for those suffering, like what a parent feels when their child cries those huge alligator tears. It comes from a special space in His heart. And we all have a little of that in our hearts too, made in His image. What if we were to embrace that rather than suppress or avoid it?
Imperfect: as long as we keep trying, we still get to be part of that incredible orchestra conducted by God, through whom all imperfection is made beautiful.
We must first recognize saintliness to be one. The work of salvation is merely a disposition of heart. No one is perfected in isolation of the other; we are perfected together. Saints in our midst.
