Thank you for this prayer and for the Tao Te Ching verse:

Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving
till the right action arises by itself?
– The Tao Te Ching, chapter 15, as translated by Stephen Mitchell, 1988

This verse has lived on my fridge for a long time and I often contemplate it when in my kitchen, reminding myself to wait with open mind and heart for whatever comes next.   It is a great joy to find it in this weeks Word.

Blessings of Advent
