I don't know if I have two more weeks of this in me, but I do know that I have another day and that's all that really matters. Just for today, I can find time to read, write, and savor the moment. Just for today, I can appreciate the wonder of the Christ child's coming into our world once again.
When we pray the Lord's prayer, we ask that God give us THIS day our daily bread and He does. We can feel nervous if we want more than what we need just for today, but that's our problem not God's. So just for today, find a moment, and it may be just a moment, to consider that in the midst of all that you are doing, God is busy readying the world for the celebration of the birth of his Son once again. Just for today, know that our journey is not in vain, for as we wait for Christmas to be upon us, God is waiting to shower us with his love. So even if the holiday lights are no longer dazzling, the light that is Christ is beckoning us to take just one more step in our advent journey. I have another step in me. How 'bout you?
