    29 November 2015 – Anticipation

    Lord you know all about me.
    You know how excited I am
    When a child runs to me, arms spread out
    And flings herself at me;
    In the rush nearly knocking me over.
    Tears spring, are blinked back,
    Because the rush of joy,
    The overwhelming sense of welcome and love
    Pours over like fragrant perfume.

    If I think about Jesus coming again
    I have to unpick some of the dread judgement images
    And see the excitement and celebration,
    The joy and light.

    Throughout the years
    People have yearned
    for a time of peace, of justice,
    But more than that:
    Of blossoming and flourishing,
    Of the earth restored to its intended beauty
    Of the Coming of the Lord
    To make all things well.

    So, as we travel through Advent this year
    May our longing and yearning
    Bear fruit in the way we are gentle with others;
    The way we encourage and support,
    Smile and refrain from complaints.
    It will not be easy, but it will speak of Your Kingdom
    Alive and well here on earth.

    Then our eyes will shine with expectation and excitement
    For we shall be sharing in the prospect of
    The coming of the Lord
    In all His Glory.

    Amen                                   Hazel Parsons
