Henri Nouwen Quote and Advent

Henri Nouwen was a great writer and his legacy continues to shine a bright light on all who read his works. Despite being a big fan of Nouwen, I had never seen the quote from him I saw last night at the Disciple's Fellowship Advent Journey. I have to give props to Tyler and Helen for putting that together. It was a great chance to walk my family through that journey. Below is the quote. I pray it blesses you as it has blessed me.

"Active waiting means to be present fully to the moment, in the conviction that something is happening where you are and that you want to be present to it. A waiting person is someone who is present to the moment, who believes that this moment is the moment."
