I sat in this traffic tonight,
impatient and tired,
(and a little bit whiny).
When I had to wait for the traffic light
to cycle through a third time,
“I just want to go HOME!”
(to no one in particular)
I was calling and crying out to You.
For the journey gets tense and tired,
And I don’t want to wait. any. more.
Yet in this Advent season,
You ask me to wait,
You invite me to long
for your Presence,
your Words of hope and healing.
just a little longer
