And the exasperated dad said,”Hurry up! It is like waiting for Christmas!” Children in slow motion just drag time so slowly it can be painful. Minute after minute, second after second seem wasted on tasks that in normal speed takes mere moments. Add to the fact that you need to be somewhere else only adds to the frustration.
Four Sundays in Advent seem to leave plenty of room for so much activity before Christmas and yet Advent time is the exact opposite of slow coach children. The next four weeks will go by at a flash by speed.
Give then a little time each day to God. Why not use this blog to steady the clock and give a little time to thought of Jesus, his birth, his return and the hope that is promised.
