Standing Before Him, Shared Words by Texas Artist Laurie Pace

"Oh, king of us all. 
I find myself standing before 
your strength and splendor 
watching, waiting 
and filled with total joy.

You have lifted my mind in hope. 
Now help me to open my life 
the the coming of the Spirit.

I want to be like Mary, your mother. 
Her wonderful courage and strength 
inspire me to do the same. 
She simply said Yes 
and the impossible was done.

Thank you for this Advent journey. 
The anticipation has filled my life 
and made me long for 
a closer relationship with you.

My life gets so busy that I forget to focus. 
Thank you for guidance. 
Thank you for the quiet moments 
when I have felt your love.

Nothing will be impossible with God.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel 
Shall come to thee, O Israel!"
