Give up for a while…

your false and failing attempts at merriment, and thank God for thin places, and for advent, for a season that understands longing and loneliness and long nights. let yourself fall open to advent, to anticipation, to the belief that what is empty will be filled, what is broken will be repaired, and what is lost can always be found, no matter how many times it’s been lost.
