This Week’s Theme: Anticipation

“Anticipation lifts the heart”.

Luci Shaw, God with Us: Rediscovering the Meaning of Christmas

Perhaps our weary hearts need that reminder of what it feels like to be a kid on Christmas morning, eager to open gifts hiding under bows and pretty paper.

In the places where joy feels illusive, hidden by shadow and beaten down by the circumstances of this year, may you rest in Christ and know you are held.

May you know hope deep in the grief-stricken places as you anticipate the celebration of His coming.

Your stories are welcome here. Always. We know vulnerability is hard, but this community is that safe place to share. Join us in the blog post comments this week at Velvet Ashes, or share on social media in the comments or in your own posts with the hashtag #VelvetAshesAnticipation.
