Second Wednesday of Advent – Advent Waiting by Andrew Wade

by Christine Sine

This second reflection for today comes from Andrew Wade who lives in Hood river Oregon.  It was originally written for St Nicholas Day but makes a beautiful contribution to our What Are We Waiting for This Advent series

Advent

eyes straining to see

dim light, dark glass, confusion

God’s future unfolds

longing, not ready

distracted by life’s worries

how long will I wait?

appearing godly

barren soil destroys new life

revealing parched soul

another year gone

unplanned, unprayed, disjointed

all creation waits

advent calls my name

scraping scales of death from eyes

God’s future unfolds

Immanuel
