Advent invites us to peace, love, hope, mystery, meaning and new life. Accepting this invitation amid the clatter and commercialism of the holiday season is the true gift of Christmas. All it takes it a little intention and a bit of awareness. Which is the purpose of the daily haikus I'll be posting here and on Instagram starting December first. Faithkus, as I like to call them. Just a few words, arranged with love, to ponder in the heart for a moment each day. But a moment is everything, because God is present and heaven is all around us. At Advent and always.
