In our modern cultures we have forgotten to see God in everyday things and ordinary people. Our ancestors were much better at taking time to see the Divine in their lives and thus were better off than us (in some ways). Here is another ancient blessing/prayer that may help us see 'Immanuel' with us this Advent season.
You are the peace of all things calm
You are the place to hide from harm
You are the light that shines in dark
You are the heart's eternal spark
You are the door that's open wide
You are the guest who waits inside
You are the stranger at the door
You are the calling of the poor
You are my Lord and with me still
You are my love, keep me from ill
You are the light, the truth, the way
You are my Saviour this very day. (Irish Blessing)
Hebrews 13:2 - Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.
