We chose a booklet of reflections from Mother Teresa, which will be wonderful.
One of the other readings, though, is running through my head. We all know that whatever runs through my head must exit out of my mouth (or fingertips).
The writer, Mark Neilsen, asked why, during Advent, we still waited for Jesus to come? Hadn't He already been born, long ago, in Bethlehem? Yes, He had.
We wait, still, for Him to return in the future, as God promised.
Mr. Neilsen then made the point that we don't have to wait at all. We just have to ask. Jesus is waiting for us. Let me repeat that. Jesus is waiting for us, for me. All I have to do is ask and He will be with me. He will stay with me. He will protect me. He will guide me. He will laugh with me, and at me. He will comfort me. All I have to do is ask.
