It is sometimes difficult when listening to the news to keep the "merry" in our Christmas. What is there to be merry about anyway?
Well this is the time of year when we need to work hard to keep our priorities in order. We need to remember that even in the worst of times, and there have been plenty of those throughout history, there have been those who have been able to make us see the good in humanity, and also remind us of the fact that we are only travelers in this world, passing through to a better place.
It is interesting that in this time of fear and anxiety over the things and people of the Middle East, that we are preparing to celebrate similar refugees from long ago, looking for a safe place to shelter while they bring their son into this strife-filled world. And the world needed that baby, who would go back n the change it forever.
