I was sifting through a few journal entries this morning and found this "Author Unknown" piece that I want to share. Too many times we are trapped in wondering how to fill our days productively or wish for things we can't have. I liked this analogy, and I hope you do too. If you know who might have written this, please let me know. Have a wonderful day on your journey.
If, as Herod, we fill our lives with things, and again with things; if we consider ourselves so unimportant that we must fill every moment of our lives with action, when will we have time to make the slow, long journey across the desert as did the Magi? Or sit and watch the stars as did the shepherds? Or brood over the coming of the child as did Mary? For within each of us there is a desert to travel. A star to discover. And a being within ourselves to bring to life. ~ Author Unknown
