As we begin the month of November our eyes start turning to a star and a stable and a time of year where we learn again to be patient.
Advent literally means 'arrival'. It leads us to the celebration of the arrival of God made man, in the birth of Jesus. But the season of Advent is all about waiting - waiting for this arrival and waiting for when He comes again. Its a season that leads itself to preparation, to promises yet fulfilled and to waiting for God. It can lead us into journeys of pain, frustration, joy and wonder. Waiting changes us.
