For me, the Advent season is also about taking some moments to notice things that we may take for granted. This morning, I saw the landscape in a new way -- through my mother's eyes. While waiting in an office, she observed our area's brown rolling hills and remarked on their beauty. Framed by leafless trees, branches stretched heavenward, the view for me then became holy as I took in the detail. How often we give such a scene a passing glance without appreciating what is really there to enjoy in God's creation. I have also noticed my husband's tender care for my mother during these past days in this first week of Advent. His attentiveness to her well-being and humor with her exemplifies for me the importance of taking time to build relationships and certainly to maintain and care for those we have. May we all continue to open our eyes to the ways that God is present to us in creation and through each other. --Adele+
