Advent - Emmanuel
It is the season of coming. I have prayed, at times, for God to be somewhere or do something only to have Him stop me in my tracks with the sharp awareness that He already IS. He already DOES.
Even for those of us whose lives are pretty much built around our faith, there are times when earth simply seeps into our skin around the edges. And somehow, for some ignorant reason, it dulls us to the reality of His absolute presence. His nearness. As close as the breath on your lips Closer, even.
