I must admit that I am not very good at waiting. I don’t care for lines. Sunday, after morning worship, I make plans to eat lunch at places where I can walk in and sit down. Checkout lines . . . hate em. Traffic, and I live in Houston, are the worst. At least, I guess, I have a radio on the car.
Advent is a season of preparation. It is a a season of waiting for the Christ child. This morning, I pray for patience, as I wait for the day to unfold. I promise to wait calmly. I will give more kindness than stress to those who serve as a witness to God while checking me out at stores and supermarkets. I pray a prayer of preparation as I wait in the long lines of traffic on the freeway.
Today, I’m going to prepare my heart to wait.
