Rejoice in the Journey!
If, as Herod, we fill our lives with things...and if we consider ourselves so important that we must fill every moment of our lives with action...when we we have the time to make the long, slow journey across the desert as did the Magi? Or sit and watch the stars as did the shepherds? Or brood over the coming of the Child, as Mary did?
For each of us there is a desert to travel... a star to discover...and a connection to nurture with Christ who is to come, born to bring us life!
On Gaudete Sunday, these 3 admonitions remind me of the 3 candles lit in our Advent journey...wishing you every blessing.
