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

Chronic Pain: The Void in Your Life
Sometimes, pain becomes so overwhelming that it closes out every ounce of strength and light that we might once have felt. And, into their place, there is a void. A void of light. A void of will. A void of hope. The pain can suffocate and keep us down. Yes, it can prevent us from physically moving f
