Advent. Silence.

It was a long time in the coming.
Hundreds of years, not being exact.
Promise upon promise, yet nothing doing.
For four hundred years, there was Silence.

Then, suddenly, it all began happening.
In nine months, or thereabouts, there were
angel appearances in dreams and daylight.
Miraculous pregnancies. The Promise kept.

In this Advent season, I, too, experience Silence.
Nights are dark, quiet, lonely. I hear nothing.
I cling to promise upon promise, hoping in faith.
My heart strains to hear His voice again.
