I watched as the night moved towards day. My thoughts were in a quiet space where light so gently and sweetly enters. Not in a flash but with each second turning the night to a lighter shade. Then it struck me, the message in the morning was clear. Each breaking of dawn is a visible sign of the coming of Christ. In that sense Christ is always coming, always presenting himself in a renewal of life. Each day marks both His arrival and His presence. Like the birth of a new day He too comes gently and sweetly. He warms our chilled hearts, He softens the harsh landscape, He penetrates the darkness. He is both ever moving and anchored simultaneously. As Advent approaches, please focus in on this idea of Christ coming like the Morning Star. His presence was visible by the Star in the East, we most make ut long journey towards Him,watch the night turn to day, growing our hearts and making room for Him. Advent should become the adventure of a lifetime, the New Dawn that awakens us to the life.John wrote: "All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be.What came to be through him was life,and this life was the light of the human race" We can be fully alive in the light of a new day.
