The image of wonder and awe...
tiny children standing on tip toes,
or jumping up and down waiting for Christmas.
Somehow they can't figure out how long it takes to the big day,
but we all know they just can't wait.
Somehow as we grow older, we loose a lot of that eager impatience.
For me, my waiting on tiptoes turns into trying to survive the season.
And so it is that once more I too want to wait for the right attitude.
The right attitude for Advent is a child's attitude;
eyes wide open,
watching for the wonder,
watching for the opportunities
waiting on tiptoe- just like a little kid waiting for Christmas.
