Have you ever thought of the Christmas season as a journey? It certainly was for Joseph and Mary, from Nazareth to Bethlehem; for the shepherds, from their fields to the stable; for the wise men, from their home in the east to Judea. And for God s only Son, from his place in heaven to earth as a baby lying in a manger. As you travel toward the night of nights this season, take time to consider their stories, their apprehensions, their fears, their courage, and their faith. As you Journey to Christmas, invite someone to journey with you. Traveling with friends and loved ones is always best.
Balanced living is possible, if we are willing to act.
