Storms are coming your way. Winds will howl and you will have a choice
December 5th - we all have a choice
Life is the sum of all your choices.
The expression 'do not be afraid' is among the Bible’s favorite expressions. When the storm rages, when angels appear, when others persecute us, when all our hopes have died, the Christ who lives in our hearts whispers 'fear not', take heart, I am with you.
The older we get, the more likely we are to need such courage to keep learning, keep growing and on going. The good Lord knows that we’ll require strength from above to raise an issue we’d rather ignore, to challenge ourselves and others to right wrongs, big and small.
The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.
Just like the little doors you find on Advent Calendars, we each open the door to a new day every day of our lives and what we do with it is our choice. Every day you can open a door and find incredible new things!
Part of our Advent journey is about learning to hope - learning to imagine what we can't see.
Let no one who loves be called unhappy. Even love unreturned has its rainbow.
Remember: We can go a lot further together than we can alone.
PS : We don't really have any snow here yet, but it will come. Pictures are from last year.
