The risk of that yes
Opens the door to that which comes next.
A next which is impossible to fully see or imagine until the word is spoken.
Advent is a season which invites and waits for our yes.
A yes to mystery.
A yes to gratitude.
A yes to possibility.
A yes to that dream of a better tomorrow.
A yes to the other.
Before any of this could happen.
Mary risked yes.
As did Joseph.
What about you?
What about me?
