Holy One,
we are in this time
of almost
but not yet.

We tell of your promised return
but not yet.
Of the wearied hearts who wait
and grieve
and yet rejoice
for it is that time
for the Babe to be our King… and yet
not quite yet.
This Advent winds to a close
almost
but not yet
And we wait
we dream
our vision a haze
of future joys
and realized Promises.
We see imperfectly,
in a blur,
praying for all you will yet do…

We wait
in peace
and joy
for You, Divine One,
for this time
of almost
and not yet.

Amen. And Amen.
