Just sitting back tonight with sort of sad feeling…don’t really know why. 

I’m thinking about Advent, about preparing for the celebration of Christmas…but as I think of preparing I’m also aware that I’m sitting in a warm home watching the fire dance in the fireplace.  All is quiet, all is calm so there is no reason to be troubled. 

Maybe I’m just tired from a long day.
Maybe I have too many thoughts of the conflict in our nation.
Maybe I think too much about the responsibility to be light.
Maybe I’m too sensitive to the plight of the unfortunate.
Maybe all the above and even more that I don’t want to mention.

Anyway, tomorrow is a new day with new possibilities and promises as I remember the prophet Jeremiah saying:

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;therefore I will wait for him.”         Lamentations 3:22-24 (NIV)

Looking forward to the morning.

Peace

Jim
