Waiting, Still Waiting

Waiting is a period of learning.
The longer we wait, the more we hear
about him for whom we are waiting.  
Henri Nouwen

The Christmas Season, although you would never know it now, is about waiting. Think of both Simeon and Anna, the two stories about Jesus being presented in the temple after his birth. Both Anna and Simeon had been waiting.

Waiting for a long time. A very long time.

The entire Jewish nation had been waiting.
