Holiday Encouragement

"If, as Herod, we fill out lives with things, and again with things; if we consider ourselves so unimportant that we must fill every moment of our lives with action, when will 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 did Mary? For each one of us, there is a desert to travel...a star to discover"...and most importantly, a time to reflect on the joyful simplicity this season brings.

I love this quote and don't even know who wrote it. But definitely someone I would like to get to know! When you are willing to go deeper, good things happen.

So, it's ok if you are somewhere in the desert in your life-job changes, partner changes, body changes...slow down, meditate on the real meaning of the Christmas season. Let your life, and all that it involves, come to you.

If you are seeking, you will find.
