So here we are on Christmas Eve.
For two weeks I’ve had “Write Mysteria Advent 3” on my to-do list. For 3 days I’ve had “Write Advent 3-4” post on that same list. Alas.
Late last week, I was really beating myself up about not writing a post for Advent 3. I got to Friday night, looked at my to-do list and started to cry. I hadn’t crossed anything off — it had just grown. I was so frustrated! Thwarted from my project only two weeks in? What kind of pilgrim did that make me?
Perhaps it makes me a pretty average pilgrim. Maybe the last week of migraines & work stress are just like blisters when you’re walking. Maybe that’s just a good lesson for the journey — that life gets in the way sometimes, but we just have to keep re-aligning ourselves, listening for God’s voice, watching for God’s signs, feeling God’s presence. It doesn’t mean you’ve failed; God was/is right there in the stress & “distractions”.
So maybe I’m a little late with this post, or maybe I’m right on time.
I haven’t exactly been idle – I’ve also been writing blogposts for A Nun’s Life. If you’re looking for some good music to prepare you for tomorrow (or just to listen to!) then click away!
