Waiting on a Child

My family and I are getting to spend this Advent season of waiting on a child in a peculiarly special way: by literally waiting on a child.

Arielle is full-term pregnant with our second child--a boy this time. That's right. Unto us a child will be born! Any day now. As much as we try to go about life as normal until "it's time," there's a beautiful distraction hanging over us. What if today's the day? What if today is the day I get to meet my son? Is everything ready for him to come? Pretty frequently everything else--even the important and urgent--is pushed out of my mind to make room for questions like these. Can you even imagine the weight of distraction Mary & Joseph must have been under?
