Christmas, in motion...

"For many of us, sadly, the spirit of Christmas is 'hurry'. And yet, eventually, the hour comes when the rushing ends and the race against the calendar mercifully comes to a close. It is only now perhaps that we truly recognize the spirit of Christmas. It is not a matter of days or weeks, but of centuries-nearly twenty of them now since that holy night in Bethlehem. Regarded in this manner, the pre- Christmas rush may do us greater service than we realize. With all its temporal confusion, it may just help us to see that by contrast, Christmas itself is eternal."

Our busiest and most hurried pre-Christmas times were when our children were young, with events planned for the holidays at school and church. Those years passed, then there were busy years with young grandchildren. Now we've entered a new phase with no little ones ... just we oldies ... and plenty of time for reflection and gratitude.
