Wait … #pauseforAdvent

Hush.lamp by Stushie

I wait, as I so rarely wait.
Forgetting the value of waiting
in a world of rushing.
But you will not be rushed,
and it’s you I am waiting for.

The world waited, once,
for your coming;
whispers among angels,
finally bursting into song
at your arrival.

And the world waits, again
for your coming,
groaning in anticipation
of its redemption
and renewal.

Hush.
I wait, as I so rarely wait.
So eager to get to the next thing
check this, update that,
hurrying through my life.

You wait, as you always wait.
Until one day, when your waiting is over
and we will all be gathered up and gathered in
and we will understand
why the waiting was so
important.
