Advent – The Season of Waiting and Preparation

If you listed the top things that you least like to do, I’m pretty sure that waiting would be on your list. I know that it’s on mine. It doesn’t matter if it is waiting at a red light or a line at the store, we would rather have an express lane option where we could skip the line. But waiting is part of life. Parents must wait nine months for the birth of their child. Patients must wait for the results of their lab tests. Students must wait for graduation.

Direction & Community

A few years ago, my wife asked me to workout with her at a gym that had rows of exercise equipment. I signed up and joined her but it didn’t take long before I lost motivation to work out by myself on these machines. A short time later I canceled my membership. Sometime later, she once again encouraged me to join her; this time we signed up at a gym that offered classes.
