Daily Bread

From Today's Office
But it is for you, O LORD, that I wait.
Psalm 38:15a
One of the many reasons we wait in Advent is to hone our skills of being joyfully and fully present now. After a month of doing this, Christmas Day can gain a depth and meaning that would otherwise fly past in a whirl of presents and mince pies. —Paula Gooder, The Meaning is in the Waiting
Prayer of the Day for Eucharist

Thank you, Lord, for your promise that no matter what, your words will not pass away. Your truth is everlasting, and I choose to stand in your truth daily, eagerly awaiting your coming in power and glory. Amen.
