Homesick for Hope

Deep down in each of us is a yearning or a longing for home. No matter how good we might have it in this life, we realize that this world is not as it should be and we long for something more.  We might even say that we are homesick for it.  Advent is a reminder that God has planted a seed of eternity in everyone’s heart and the closer we get to celebrating Jesus’ birth the more we realize that this hope is always among us.
