Wake Up!

“Sleeper, awake!
Rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”
Ephesians 5:14

I told my self to wake up the other day. And, my first thought back was, well there’s a lot more wake than sleep going on so why do I need to wake up. But, running around and being busy aren’t the same as being awake.

This is the time of year when God is showing up and showing off everywhere. People that don’t even know Jesus are proclaiming his birth in their lights and their decorations and even in their “Happy Holidays.”

And I miss it.

So I invite you to join me in this admonition to “wake up!” God is here. Jesus is in the face of the overworked and underpaid cashier, barista or harried dad or mom. It may be dark outside, but the lights are shining bright. Let’s not miss him.

Advent blessings,



December 2, 2010 NUDGE Awakening Each Other To The God Who’s Already There by Leonard Sweet I recently began this book and am finding it to be engaging, affirming and inspirational. We don’t need to go after people and pound Jesus into them, Sweet tells us that God is already active in each of our lives. We can just be open to God’s presence, listen and help one another see what God is doing for, with, and in us. I really like this book. ~ Vikki Luce
