Yesterday started with daylight only sparsely present. I walked outside and noticed the clouds shifting in a swooping motion.
It was supposed to be more chilly, I thought. My daughter said, “It hasn’t moved through yet. It’s coming.”
And it did, we had dinner after shopping later, the wind cold and the sky filling with stars above a fuzzy peace sunset.
I remembered earlier in the day, I had sat aside the Advent Card for Day 20, noticing the image so much like stars, clouds, waiting for change.
Little triangle shapes like Christmas trees planted for next year’s home.
Thinking of how nervous and anxious I was on Thursday for what I’d be doing Friday, speaking in front a large group, cameras, prominent people…but I was okay, it was okay.
Yesterday was good. Good and unexpected things made me smile. There was some bad, some annoying and out of nowhere mean, sharp words.
A good day, but a long one.
Yesterday becoming today.
Yesterday was good. Today will be too.
Come thou long expected Jesus.
But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.
She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
