"If, as Herrod, we fill our lives with things, and again with things; if we consider ourselves so unimportant that we must fill every moment if 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 a child as did Mary? For each one of us, there is a desert to travel. A star to discover, and a being within ourselves to bring to life."
Take time. On this Christmas Day and on every day. Take time.
