Advent is from the Latin word “adventus” which means “arrival.” Often I convince myself that the “arrival” of Christ in me requires a dramatic or gut wrenching response that rips through me with anguish…

What if it is a mere breath of consent?

An invitation to breath?

Ten days till Christmas, so much that is NOT ready, but I choose to gently let the rhythm of this fundamental part of life interrupt my thinking – breathing in and breathing out.


I give my consent to be interrupted with a mere breath.

Come Lord Jesus, come…
