The word for today on one of my iPhone Advent devotionals is:
And Brother Curtis said on the SSJE Advent Word for the Day, which today is Desire:
Listen to your desire. Our capacity to desire is God-given. No matter how flimsy our desires, no matter how conflicted or shadowy or duplicitous or even wrong our desires may be on the surface, they are connected to something deep within our souls that really demands attention, and that is good.
