Advent: Wait

It seems like I'm always waiting for something: the line to move, my kids to get ready, for things to happen.

I try to bear it with good humor, but the worst is when I have to wait idly. We were created to tell stories, to love, to make art, to sing, not just to be alive but to live. We can't shorten the wait by our activity, but when we wait idly we begin waiting to die.

The magi studied and scoured the heavens, and Simeon lived a life such that the gospel calls him righteous. How are we waiting?
