Middle Minutes Adoration

Wonder starts in the inn — yours and mine. Your struggling marriage, your wayward child, your fractured heart and unfulfilled dreams: these are the mangers that cradle our God breakthroughs. As advent nears the end, could it be that wonder-moments aren’t in how the meal came together, beautifully, how the carols rang through our homes, or the way our circumstances miraculously shifted, but in our “what isn’t” — in the gaps between our ideals and what’s real in our home? God keeps coming to me here, in the real. You, too?
