Advent Photo Meditations - Week 2

Day 8 - Wisdom

A green Shoot will sprout from Jesse’s stump, from his roots a budding Branch. The life-giving Spirit of God will hover over him, the Spirit that brings wisdom and understanding, The Spirit that gives direction and builds strength, the Spirit that instills knowledge and Fear-of-God.
- Isaiah 11:1-2, The Message

Buried, dormant, dark,
Yet life remains in the crown,
Waiting to spring forth.

Day 9 - Delight

What delights my heart?
Grandchildren playing outside,
Spirits light and free.

Day 10 - Holy

Upon God's alter
Mystery is made concrete
And all join as one.

Day 11 - Steadfast

Where all are welcome,
Then, now and forevermore,
God's steadfast promise.

Day 11 - Hope

Hope in beginnings
For those tillers of the soil
Tilling soul as well.

Day 12 - Justice

From high mountain tops
To deepest valley streambeds
God's justice prevails.

Day 13 - Gather

Gathering all in,
Fruit of the land and spirit,
Joy in the bounty.
