For Advent this year I’m going to try to participate in the #AdventWord project from Anglican Communion’s Global Advent Calendar with a daily meditation.

Today’s word is Awaken, which is a loaded word for me.  I’ve always had trouble sleeping and feeling rested.  When I was younger I struggled with insomnia often staying up the entire night and then needing to sleep through the day.  In the decade I’ve had children, I’ve gone from not being able to sleep to always wanting to be to sleep.  I have sleep therapies in the form of a CPAP which help some, but still I find myself in a sleepy fog most of the time.  I think this has contributed to my also not being awake to my family, friends, co-workers, and other people around me.  So a challenge this Advent is to work and pray for a spiritual awakening.
