A Poem for the Beginning of Advent

Advent is a breath
slight as wind through snow
strong as a choir before the note
fierce as a mother in labor
deep as God’s sigh for the world.

So breathe.

Breathe hope and peace.
Breathe joy and love.
Breathe Christ,
who breathes in you.
Emmanuel, God with us.

With every breath, 
God be with us.
