expectant longing {Advent}

O come, O come Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appears

that longing...full of expectation yet waiting, wondering. A nation, a world waiting for the Redeemer.

Within the lines of this song on the longing for the Savior is the reminder that He is here. Emmanuel - God with us. And Emmanuel did come to us. The reason to celebrate Christmas. Emmanuel - God with us.


  1. Amen! I am so thankful HE is here with us! :)

    Love that picture! Very pretty. :D

  2. Beautiful post, Charis. Yes, indeed...HE has come...and will come again!! What an amazing thought. May the Lord bless you as you celebrate His first coming with your husband. Merry Christmas! Hugs, Camille
