I’m with the Magi today, as described in Prepare Your Heart for a Great Christmas:

Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28-30)  The Magi would have welcomed this word of encouragement from Jesus. Little did they know, as they journeyed to see the star, that the baby whose birth it proclaimed would indeed be the source of refreshment, the creator of the universe. 

We’re on a journey with the Magi these days. We come bearing gifts, setting out in haste, seeking the light.  As we waver under the burdens of our busy lives, let’s remember those desert wanderers centuries ago. While we may know who waits for us under the star, we’re searching for something new, too.

I have so much I want to accomplish, yet I don’t know where to begin.  This time of the year is filled with such possibilities, and I want to be energized by them and not overwhelmed with them. 

Maybe for today I can take some time to enjoy the season, rather than rushing onto the next thing that needs to be done.  I have a slight cold and sore throat, and the weather is particularly yucky outside.  But the forecast is for warmer temperatures today.  I’ll warm into the day, as well!

Happy Birthday, Dad!
