The Advent of Wonder
An Advent Reflection
Puddles bubbling drops on their surface Wet earth saturated with potential Mocking birds seeking shelter under branches Rain purring rhythmically on tin Warm feline love pouring generously Grief hiding hope Simple presence awakening it Life, death, re-birth Here, there, everywhere What does rain look like from space? Can the stars see planets weeping, seeds perceive the action of sprouting, or petals feel themselves blooming? To be a participant in the body of God, to be a contributor in the cell that is the earth, finding meaning in just this, grateful for my part in the becoming, zooming out and further still to behold the solar systems and galaxies, the sparkling universes upon universes, knowing that Love is the compelling force in this eternal, fractal birthing is the holy advent of wonder.
May your mind be peaceful and calm, may your body be relaxed and comfortable, and may your heart be filled with love.
Thank you for reading.
Blessings and gratitude, Ani
