In the busyness that often accompanies this season, I want to encourage you to BREATHE and to sit quietly each day. pondering what it means to you and to the world that the Word became Flesh. It’s a beautiful and mind-boggling mystery that Christians believe in their faith. Overthinking this mystery might drive you a little crazy, but just sit. And breathe.
Breath Prayer for Advent
Inhale and raise arms: “I await You…
Exhale/hands to heart center: … Light of the World.”
Inhale and raise arms: “Enter my heart…
Exhale/hands to heart center: …Prince of Peace.”
Inhale and raise arms: “”I welcome You…
Exhale/hands to heart center: … the Word who became Flesh.”
Repeat as often as needed for focusing on Him and your breath, for taking a disconnect from all the busyness and commercialism.
With love and prayers for peace in this season of Advent,
