Meditation for Advent: Day 20

God speaks to us in (God’s) own special sign language – a baby.

Not much.

A small December child.

A baby is birth, beginnings, potential without guarantee.

A baby is helpless but not hopeless.

A baby is someone to watch.

A baby is the future appearing now.

Are there baby-signs from God

signaling hope to us watchers on the hillsides?
