So yesterday – Sunday 29 November – was officially the start of Advent 2015. I want to write a haiku for each day of the waiting. (I’ve posted the first six, below.) It would be so great to do this thing together? You could send me your thoughts, or join me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest – for just seventeen syllables a day, to hold the hope of a King who put on skin to offer us boundless grace.
You might also enjoy these Christmassy posts:
Finding the Extra in the Ordinary: How to carry on when you carry something you’ll carry for life
A letter to my son, when he figured out that Father Christmas isn’t real
A Christmas prayer for the world, from a small corner of Africa
Mary waits in awe
Father sending Son down
But the world sleeps, still.

It’s not very “Adventy”..but something I want to remember….:)
Christmas trees bright
call to mind the rugged tree
carrying the true Gift.
