Road Work ?

One of the email Advent devotionals I received this week instead of focusing on the usual Advent theme of “coming” had a thought on “construction.”

I received this from Franciscan Media –

Your Daily Minute Meditation –
Advent Is Construction Season
The call of Advent is clear. From both the prophet Isaiah and John the Baptist, we hear, “Make straight in the desert a highway for our God.” Isaiah was writing to the people exiled far from their homeland. John the Baptist was talking to people who had lost their way in a tangle of politics and religion. In our own lives, we hear this call as well. We all have some roadwork to do in our souls. We might say Advent is construction season.

—from the book Simple Gifts: Daily Reflections for Advent by Diane M. Houdek

Road work as an Advent discipline – worth thinking about.
