Heaven moves. We move. The absolute best things happen on the heaven and earth dance floor. We see this cadence in the Christmas narratives of Matthew and Luke. And because Advent is advancing, we can live every day with this Christmas Cadence.

Scripture for meditation, prayer, and proclamation
And there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was righteous and devout, looking forward to the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him. And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law, then he took Him in his arms, and blessed God, and said, “Now, Lord, You are letting Your bond-servant depart in peace, according to Your word;
or my eyes have seen Your salvation, which You have prepared in the presence of all the peoples: A light for revelation for the Gentiles,
And the glory of Your people Israel.” Luke 2:25-32 NASB
And there was a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was advanced in years and had lived with her husband for seven years after her marriage, and then as a widow to the age of eighty-four. She did not leave the temple grounds, serving night and day with fasts and prayers. And at that very moment she came up and began giving thanks to God, and continued to speak about Him to all those who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem. Luke 2:36-38 NASB
