I also wait to see all my loved ones no longer here. (very hard waiting for this) Waiting is what we all do and it is the key feature of Advent waiting for God to be born, waiting for Jesus to come again and waiting for our lives to join in deeper with the hope of Love. Whatever you are waiting for, may your time of waiting be filled with creativity, love, peace and hope. As we all wait for the birth of the one who comes to rescue us from all the hatred, savagery and destruction in our world. May above all we see the Prince of Peace in our world and life, this Advent and then Christmas (25th-6th January). Enjoy all the parties in Advent too.
