Slow down, already.

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 long slow 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 each one of us
There is a desert to travel
A Star to discover,
And a being within ourselves
To bring to life.

  1. love it. I am caught in the whirl wind of last minute shopping right now. However, tonight we will slow down as a family of 3 and ride around to look at Christmas lights and listen to Chris Tomlin Christmas CD.
    It helps me to know that our Lord and savior had a humble beginning so many years ago.
