Advent 2012: Are You on Hold?

ADVENT DAY 3:  Are you on hold?

Waiting on the telephone is often one of the most aggravating things that can happen in a day, especially because nothing much happens! Oh, we might hear a loop with the same music over and over again (even if it is Christmas music, this can get old). But we’re in limbo, stymied, unable to more ahead because…we’re on hold!

We can be “on hold” in life, too. Perhaps, this first week of December, you are waiting for an answer about a medical test, an insurance response, a financial situation. And all around you, Advent marches on and the Christmas season unfolds in all of its glory.

So many things are out of our control while we’re waiting, in life or on the telephone. So, if you are on hold, take this to heart. And put your time on hold to good use. Pray, imagine, dream, live well. Be the kind, loving person you want to be when, as will happen, the person at the other end of the line picks up and you finally have your answer, can talk, and are no longer on hold!

Blessings for the day,

Maureen

Is It Christian to Take Care of Yourself before Others?
We are fast approaching the most profoundly Christian time of the year, Holy Week and Easter, during which we will hear again about Jesus' ultimate sacrifice, death on the cross, which redeemed us, washing away our sin and opening up for us life everlasting. What an amazing love! What an amazingly s
