"Whenever Christmas begins to burden, it’s a sign that I’ve taken on something of the world and not of Christ.

Christ the Babe comes in Christmas as Christ the Savior comes on the Cross — seeking only our embrace.

What if I laid down efforts and expectations, perfectionism and performance, and simply waited with arms and heart and eyes wide open?

...The slower we take the days of Advent, the more places we find Christ and Christmas — and the Light that warms."
