DO WE KNOW WHY, HOW, WITH WHOM WE WAIT?

 

As I sat quietly meditating on the season of Advent, I thought I should research some of the biblical scriptures that would enlighten and remind me about this special period that is called ‘ADVENT ‘and its true meaning. I’d like to share this with readers of this blog. Most of you probably know them already but it is good to renew and remind ourselves what they are telling us about the season. I give credit to our beloved bible scholar Sister Carol for her brochure on ‘Waiting: A Spiritual Guide for Advent 2007’ that I came across as I did my research and the titles and quotes are taken from that brochure.

WHY?

  • “While we wait for the blessed hope and the manifestation of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ” – Titus 2:13
  • “On that day the root of Jesse shall stand as a signal to the peoples; the nations shall inquire of him” – Isaiah 11:10

HOW?

  • “It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” – Lamentations 3:26
  • “Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord.” – Psalm 27:14

WITH WHOM?

  • “Blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her by the Lord.” – Luke 1:45
  • “Nothing will be impossible with God” – Luke 1:37

NOW IS THE TIME

  • “If it seems to tarry, wait for it; it will surely come, it will not delay.” – Habakkuk 2:3
  • “Do not remember the former things, or consider the ways of old.” – Isaiah 43:18

I have enjoyed working for over 20 years in the education and publishing spaces creating accessible learning environments for all students. My teaching experiences led me into supporting schools in need of improvement and creating and delivering professional development to teachers and leaders. And then I moved into selling educational materials, programs, technology, and services. Most recently, I have been developing content for innovative learning programs in K-12 and museum spaces. For the past 17 years serving on the board of the Collegiate Corporation, I have led initiatives in women's leadership, stewardship, development, virtual strategy, and educational programs for youth and families. Outside of the learning and non-profit spaces, I enjoy blogging about faith and inspiring women. I have a passion for travel, where you might find me exploring national parks, museums, and finding the best local restaurant to eat. I capture my adventures digitally with my camera. My photography has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and Australia in 2019 and 2020, on television in the United States, and was chosen from over 100,000 entries to appear in a well-known photography magazine.
