Today here’s a snapshot my iPhone captured of goings-on in one of my brother’s fish tanks: Mr. Loach Fish making friendly with Mr. Alien (in a welcoming way.)
If we can find the courage (inspired by Mr. Loach) to reach outside our comfort zones this Advent weekday, we might encounter surprises of various shapes & sizes.
“Each day holds a surprise, but only if we can see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us. Let’s not be afraid to receive each day’s surprise. Whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy it will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity.” Henri Nouwen
grace, peace & Advent surprises
