We’re so close now.
that everything is going to be alright,
that peace, Shalom, will rule the day,
that LOVE ultimately wins.
“The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes”
Said the asinine tweet from the incoming president elect.
If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
There’s so much darkness in the world.
Sometimes I wonder what’s the point in trying to make it better.

There is so much to long for during this Advent season.
We are still waiting.
In this last week of Advent, I long for love to dominate everything.
I want to love and be loved.
I want to be a friend to someone who is lonely.
I want to be an instrument of God’s love. God’s friendship.
Meek: ‘Having or showing a quiet and gentle nature; not wanting to fight or argue with other people.’
Still waiting, hoping, trying, longing, praying for everything to be made right.
Those moments of joy in the midst of a broken world.
Moments of transcendence.
Moments when Heaven and Earth overlap.
