As your mind shuffles through worry over the shopping list, your travel plans, a flat tire, a pile of laundry, your anxious daughter, your distant son, and a potentially lonely December, may the brilliance of heaven somehow peek through the dusty shadows of earth.
May your preoccupation with trouble slip easily into an occupation with Christ.
May you throw yourself headlong into the arms of the Long Expected One, and may you see, though your eyes may be tired, how he occupies the space around your shopping list, your travel plans, your flat tires and piles of laundry. May you realize the tender way he hovers over your anxious daughter, your distant son, and you – in the midst of a potentially lonely December.
