Thought of the Day December 8, 2023 Expectant hush or last-minute rush?

 "Let's approach Christmas with an expectant hush, rather than a last-minute rush." Anonymous

Sometimes we get caught up with the commercial aspect of Christmas that we missed the fruit of the spiritual side.  There was much bustling in Bethlehem that night, so much so that there was no room in the inns. He came in the stillness of the night, in the solitude of a stable. People were so busy that they didn't notice the great event promised by God. Away from the city were Shepherds, caring for their sheep. The hush of the night was broken by the choirs of Angels, proclaiming the Good News of our salvation. For us to receive the gift of Jesus in a fresh new way this Christmas, we need, in the midst of our rush, to take some quality time for the solitude and hush of prayer.  It is there we will find the Messiah.
