It’s getting nearer – the adverts tell us so!
“Buy, buy! Spend, spend!
The economy’s in crisis the High Street may go bust!”
But where’s the hush? The bated breath.
The “Hush! He’s coming, He’s coming soon!”
Even in Church the cries are: “Don’t forget the Carol singing, the Nine Lessons, the cleaning day. They’re coming really soon”.
And they of course really show our devotion, our commitment our…. faith?
The hush is in our hearts. The silence within us.
The expectation is invisible, intangible, real.
Real in a way the busy world cannot know. In a way the rushed cannot feel.
Real as it was for the angels.
And for Him.
