Month of Moments

Christ comes small, the micro-macro-miracle 
who comes in the whisper and says, Seek Me. 
Ann Voskamp

Slipping out of bed at 5:30 this morning, I could feel the anticipation in my spirit of this day. Advent- Day One. I'd never paid much attention to advent, other than the lighting of candles at church each Sunday leading up to Christmas. I had to look up the word "advent" in the dictionary to understand why I was feeling this way. 

advent- the coming or arrival of something extremely important

Simple definition holding great meaning.

I plugged in my twinkle lights in the dark before dawn and gathered my Bible, journal and Ann Voskamp's book, "The Greatest Gift." It's a book of daily readings for Advent. 

"Advent, it is made of the moments."

That's it! 
The moments. 

A month of moments. 

Moments filled with grace. 

Moments anointed with Presence.

A month of His Glory.

Our lives are made up of moments. we know this yet we rush through them without a breath taken or a thank you breathed.

Will you join me this advent season in noticing? Breathing in, un-rush me, breathing out. See the glimpse of glory?

Use your camera, your pen, your art, your music, your form of noticing and capture the moments with me this month. Note them here or on Instagram with hashtag #monthofmoments.
