November 28, 2016 holy reset 


Good morning, DearHeart. 

Christmas is a season to me. Not just a day … yeah, that’s it – it’s a decision-making season. 

“Prepare the way of the Lord,/Make His paths straight” (Matt 3:3)

Preparation … expectation … anticipation … waiting … waiting in the Light of the Lord’s presence. 

We went to the city yesterday to celebrate our anniversary of 30 years of wedded bliss, or something or other. Driving home, I thought of all that asphalt and concrete and those buildings and artificial lights. All set up to lure us in and trick us into believing we must stay very preoccupied with the glitz and hullabaloo and wanting more and more and more to keep life running smoothly. But, we don’t really. 

There’s a door facing east in my kitchen. I’ve watched each of my three sons through the years stop dead in their tracks to gaze at an early morning sunrise and pause and refuel. 

And, I am filled when they’ve said, “hey, mom, come see the sunrise”. They know the Power of being filled.  

Spiritually refuel. 

Soulfully refill. 

A Holy reset. 

Our Creator doesn’t always use words to speak to us. 

Sometimes, I’ll start my morning routine, catch a glimpse of the morning light, and don’t get any further than, “thank You, thank You, thank You …”.

To me, that’s where John the Baptist’s heart was set when he quoted Isaiah, ‘prepare the way of the Lord’. 

It starts in an individual heart, yours. 

A heart that allows itself to be prepared – slowed – opened – bathed in the slow, simmering light of the Holy. 

That’s a good place to begin this holiday/Holydays season. 

And, today is a good time to begin, as well. 

Wake up. 

Holy reset. 

It’s all in the preparation.
