My Journey to God

Let Me Be an Advent Tapestry

O Emmanuel,
weave anew Your Kingdom-tapestry
in my heart this Advent season.
Penetrate and reinforce the fibers of my being.
Repair what has become frayed and worn.
Create new patterns from life-wearied threads.
Re-energize me for the journey
into Christmas and beyond,
opening my eyes
to the beauty and wonder of Your presence
within and around me.
