Advent{ure} Season No. 1

Why spend money on what is not bread,
    and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
    and you will delight in the richest of fare. (Isaiah 55:2)

As I prepare for the feasting of Christmas, my stomach growls. I’m hungry for something. Something that satisfies, something good, something of the robust and rich promise of the season.

As I wait for for the passing of Christmas, my spirit languishes. I’m hungry for something. Something that satisfies, something good, something of the robust and rich promise of the season.

As I listen to the call of Christmas, my soul soars. My hunger for wonder, appreciation, welcoming others and celebration is real. I listen for that something that will satisfy my need for deep joy. I prepare for something good, both spiritual and material. I wait for the robust and rich promise of the season.

I want to spend my money on those things that fill us up, like a warm, crusty slice of bread. I want to work on things that bring satisfaction. I want to listen for the voice that calls me by name. I want to eat that which is good. I want to delight in the richness of God’s presence.

To appreciate and welcome this season will be my end of the year ADVENTure!!!

What are you longing for this season?
