December 24th, The Vigil of the Nativity, 11:30am and I'm still at work. I said I'd leave at 12:00 noon, but I'm chaffing at the bit to be out. I've been trying to slow my mind down since I left Holy Mass this morning, but at work, well, it's my state in life so when I'm here I have to be all here. But now, it is time to go, to re-focus once again on the searching for shelter, for the Manger, the Birth. To not insert Christ in to Christmas but to allow everything else to flow to Him.
Not easy in this mad world.
