In the course of any given day,
I pass by this picture in my living room many, many times.
Seeing it, but not really seeing it.
Sort of like the Christmas season, in a way.
Seeing the lights
and the tinsel
and the presents
and all the busy-ness...
and forgetting to
much, much closer.
on what truly matters
and to meditate
on the beautiful, glorious reason for the season.
Happy Christmas Week!
