"and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit..."(Romans 5:5)

"As the deer longs for streams of water,
so my soul longs for you, O God." (Psalm 42:2)
As I begin Advent this year, I am mindful of the longing I have for God. Sometimes I find myself confused and longing for other things, like a grandchild, or a puppy, or a trip to Rome, but essentially, I am just marking time or filling the void. What my heart really longs for is God's perfect love. If I just reach out to Him in prayer, I already have that.
