A longing heart :: Christmas
Advent is coming to it's emblematic culmination for those who follow Jesus.Christmas :: this is the day, the sign, that the Kingdom has been born and we now have a God with flesh and bones on to follow into this new way of life.
During this advent season my incredibly astute wife has been asking me what my heart longs for. A great question and one that stirs up the very essence of advent. But the answer for me has been hard. But sitting here at the Barnes and Noble on Christmas Eve I think I have found my answer.
Answer :: a God with flesh and bones, a voice box and all, to follow.
He is here and I am wanting to tune into his voice, his presence in my life. That is what this longing heart is wanting this Christmas.
