December 1

Why do you say, O Jacob,
        and speak, O Israel,
    “My way is hidden from the LORD,
        and my right is disregarded by my God”?
Have you not known? Have you not heard?
    The LORD is the everlasting God,
        the Creator of the ends of the earth.
    He does not faint or grow weary;
        his understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the faint,
        and strengthens the powerless.
Even youths will faint and be weary,
        and the young will fall exhausted;
but those who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength,
        they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
    they shall run and not be weary,
        they shall walk and not faint.

          Isaiah 40:27-31

Advent is a season of waiting. That’s something my dog, Sandy, does quite well.

The people who walked in darkness
        have seen a great light;
    those who lived in a land of deep darkness–
        on them light has shined.

          Isaiah 9:2

December 3

“Do
not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or
it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be
forgiven. Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in
full–pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over,
and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount
you get back.”

Luke 6:37-38
