Stay awake during the holidays

Watching "Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back — whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn.  If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone:  ‘Watch!’" Mark 13:35-37

Three questions

– Can you remember a time when you knew deep within that you should do something, and didn’t? How did that feel?

– Can you recall a time when you felt moved within yourself to do something and responded to that stirring? How did that feel?

– When you recognize that feeling again, which of the above responses do you think will give you the most peace and why? Make a list of such times, this Advent, and increase your awareness of what it means to ‘stay awake’.
