*Waiting for the One We Love......December 18


"Advent...leads to a growing inner stillness and joy allowing me to realize that the One for whom I am waiting has already arrived and speaks to me in the silence of my heart."

from the writings of Henri Nouwen

The quote you have used from Henri Nouwen is the same one I have used on my Christmas Card this year, an extract from his Eternal Light, The Genesee Diary - it is so meaningful, especially in today's world of materialism and spending frenzy at this time of the year - a beautiful reality check.
Prayers and God's blessings for your site.

What a unique and touching image of the Christ Child, and the text is equally moving! Henri Nouwen is one of my favorite spiritual writers, the Holy Spirit truly spoke thru him of God's wisdom and love! Thank you Micki for your kind comments of yesterday, I truly appreciate them! John K.

Ally - How wonderful to have a new friend stop by and leave a comment. Welcome. Thank you for your compliment and may you and yours be blessed also.

Karl - Thank you for your blessing also, as the kids say "back at you". You chose a very meaningful quote for your Christmas card. I'm glad I chose it for the blog also :-)

John K. - We always welcome your words shared here. I'm not too familiar with Nouwen's writings. I want to learn more in the new year. It's great to see that two commenters today mentioned her personally.

The only thing that keeps me from joining the others in gushing over every one of your cards, Micki, is i want you still to be able to get your head through the door.

Irene - You made me laugh out loud. For your information, I just got a hair cut so my head should fit through the door easily.
