Beautiful, and amen --the only thing more important than being willing to die for knowing Who we come from (not what), and to Whom we go as Adopted children, is to be willing to live in that knowing--as you say--day by day.

A faith that overcomes.

:-) Have yourself a merry little Christmas, DD. I hope your heart is glad.


deacon dan, this "trust in God despite all appearances" that you speak of during Advent reminds me of something I read earlier in December from Fr. Ron Rolheiser's little book of Advent reflections entitled "Daybreak". In the very first reflection called 'The Rhythm of Love', he talks about Advent being a time of yearning and longing, and goes on to say that during Advent we can learn how to carry our tensions without rushing to resolve them all. You spoke of "birthing the improbable", and he speaks of Advent as a period of gestation in order to "give birth to what's divine". Between the two of you, I am seeing a personal spiritual analogy here with the Incarnation which I had not seen before. Thank you.
