Today is the first day of Advent, and already I feel I will never catch up and that the 24 days and nights will pass and it will be Christmas and I will have a two day bubble to catch my breath and that's it. That feeling is awful. That is not how I choose to categorize my days and my nights and my moments. I need to back away from that and try to see with new eyes.
Yet again I need to get back on the road to Bethlehem. Not try to fly overhead like a bird. I need to walk the road, step by step and enjoy the silence, the talking, the whole way.
So I take a deep breath tonight and already try to re-center myself here on the journey. Lord Jesus, protect me.
I want to allow it to unfold. I want to be a part.
