Thinking...that I will continue to search...for peace...for understanding...and for acceptance. Acceptance of the here and now...of the past...acceptance of who and where I am...Guess, one might say, "that's an awesome Christmas wish."
Cause..."Life just happens, can't be explained or figured out." Why fight it?
You know Mary and Joseph were searching for a place to rest...the wise men were searching for the majestic...Herod was searching for his rival...we're all searching...maybe we don't give ourselves whole heartedly to the search, maybe it lays dormant at times...but we're searching.
I believe we each are searching for meaning... for peace within...and we focus differently but the trek is the same. And some "wander" while others "wonder." ...and that's what Christmas brings...a gift of peace ... A babe innocent ...that with time (time being what most see as an enemy) with time becomes the substitute for worry...for weakness...for shear strength...the answer to the mystery.
Because the mystery is impossible for our human minds to solve...God provided a focus point...Jesus...who can BE the ultimate gift if we let Him...providing everything we need so that we don't have to figure out the mystery...taking the "whys" and giving us meaning. Providing peace if we rest in what He offers.
I guess that's why wise men still seek Him.
