Empty Advent

God,

I’m reminded again

that it’s ok that Advent

is empty

Wasn’t Mary’s Magnificat

about filling up the empty

with Good things!

Weren’t the Angels Sent

to gift the silent world

with Holy Songs?

Wasn’t the whole and entire point?

To fill the world a little more with the love of God.

To put Jesus physically, right here on Earth!

God, remind us that it’s not only ok, but traditional to feel empty at Advent.

And if we are trudging, the long trudge, especially this year,

please send the Holy Spirit to trudge with us we pray.

And to remind us, it’s ok if Advent feels empty this year.

Amen.
