I was with colleagues today. One commented that I seemed taller. Another said I just am more joyful. I agree. My devotional reading this week has been focusing on Advent as a time when the church is pregnant, ready to give birth to something new. That has been a helpful image to me. I am giving birth to a new way of life, feeling my way through this on the way to something much fuller and healthier. It's an exciting time, and I'm looking forward to all that the future will bring for Daughter and me. I hope something new is being born in all of you this Advent as well.
