Advent could not have come at a better time for me. Of course it comes around every year, the four weeks before Christmas. But I have been in a particular funk really for a long time, and for me this season is an opportunity to search for the coming of the Saviour in the midst of all the chaos that seems to accumulate despite my best efforts to keep life peaceful.

My little guy is almost 1 1/2, and thankfully sleepless nights are now a fairly rare occurrence. Every now and then though, I have a night that brings me back to that first year, when he never slept consistently. It was so frustrating! But living through that year with him has given me invaluable tools for coping now when we have a night that's out of the ordinary.

It is the morning after the election, and Donald Trump is President. I never thought I would see this day, and I had great fears about it. But now that it has come to be, for me I think there is only one way - and that's forward.

This is not a post about who I think people should vote for. I'm not an American, so I can't even vote. But over the past few months I, like much of the world have been following the election coverage. And I've talked about it - a lot. I have strong opinions, like probably most people, because this is a very polarizing election. A lot is at stake, especially for religious people. This is not a post about who you should vote for, or who I would vote for. It's about how you treat people who do not share your political views.
