In the Bleak Midwinter, Jesus Appears as Light and Life


 


In this season of Christmas, when so many things compete for my attention, it is the lights of Christmas that remind me that it is also the season of Advent, a season of holy waiting.

In the early morning hours, I slip downstairs and light the candles on my Advent wreath and in votives depicting the manger scene. In the midst of December darkness, soft light shines through both the room and my heart. In the still of the morning I read of the One who was foretold, who is named in so many ways.

I Waited for God in a Draw Herding Cattle and All I Got Was More of His Grace


 


“Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord.” (Psalm 27:14)

“I hate waiting.” — Inigo Montoya, The Princess Bride

One item that has been on my bucket list for a long time is going on a cattle drive. After years of trying to finagle a way to work cattle, I finally got the opportunity to do it this summer when I reconnected with a high school friend whose family owns a large cattle ranch in the mountains.

Even better (at least in my mind) was that my husband, Chase, tagged along. Freddie, the horse he rode, was the only one of us (human or equine) who had any experience working cattle. Chase joked that we were going to be in the next sequel to City Slickers.
