During this Advent, do we wait? Read More
Do we know our expectant messiah, deliverer, and savior, Jesus?
Do we listen to the Lord declaring, "Behold!" to us daily?
Do we trust the miracle?

I was on the Metra right after I returned from the Dominican. My friend Abby was moving into a new apartment, so I was inbound to help her move. New to my Bible, the pages were still crisp, and some color had been added to the pages throughout the summer. I sat on the train, ready to write in my Moleskin and read Jesus Calling for that day.

Fix-it Frankie and I hung out yesterday, and I realize that I may sound schizophrenic... You may have a "fix-it" alter-ego, too, perhaps.

Although I feel quite ordinary this Sunday afternoon, I feel as if I were on the brink of something quite extraordinary. I have been reading through various writings from the past few months, and I knew that this journey was coming. I knew that I would be weary, and I knew that it would be hard. How strange it is to already know the end of the journey, as well. I am just as curious as to where what shall happen. It could be everything or absolutely nothing, but is that not the best thing to do with a friend: everything and nothing and just be.
During this time of waiting, wait with me in Ireland. I think that is where I shall go this week. Wake up and go get your converse. We are going on an adventure in this Advent. Read More
